Happy Birthday, Brandi!

Happy Birthday, Brandi! published on No Comments on Happy Birthday, Brandi!

My fabulous upline, Brandi, has a birthday coming up!  Yea!  Of course I needed to make a card using my latest products.  I really wanted to make another card using Friends Never Fade and Greenhouse Gala DSP, but this time using a darker color palette.  I found this great layout over at the OCC Sketch Blog:

I knew it was just right!  For the small rectangle, I used a piece of the DSP that has Chocolate Chip as the main color.  I wanted the darker piece so that I could use my cool new 1/8″ Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon.  It is really fun ribbon!  I have to say that I have been leaning towards wider and wider ribbon the longer I have stamped so this was kind of a gamble (or so I thought) to buy.  No fear, it is awesome to work with and, frankly, works in places that wide ribbon won’t.  I colored directly on the flower stamp with Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Real Red and Early Espresso markers.  The words are from the Well Scripted set (ret).  Here is the result:

The little bow was inspired by Kerin Sylvester‘s card for this week’s Stampin’ 411 sketch challenge.  I used Early Espresso paper for the layering and it really goes beautifully with this DSP!  I find it funny how the addition of some new colors can change how I feel about the existing ones.  Real Red has generally not been my “go-to” red but somehow it feels updated when added to the Daffodil, Baja Breeze and Espresso.

Brandi, I hope you have a wonderful birthday!  Thanks so much for being my upline and inspiring me to become a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!!
