French Foliage Birthday

French Foliage Birthday published on 5 Comments on French Foliage Birthday

Well, this isn’t a post with new products but it is a post, so I’m happy.  I can’t say enough about the cool sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week and I used it again here.  I also wanted to celebrate The Paper Players 100th Challenge.  They want you to choose any of their past challenges and play along (not anything goes).  I chose challenge #62, a theme challenge – birthdays.  This one is near and dear to my heart because I was chosen as Headliner with this card.  Being chosen by this group of stampers out of that pool of talent was such a big deal to me and I still remember how excited I was to be selected!

I made a masculine birthday card for a friend of our family turning 40.  I turned to a go-to set, French Foliage.  Always perfect for a masculine card!  I still have some of the awesome Well Worn DSP from last year’s catalog and love it with this stamp set.  I let the paper be my guide for colors and stamped leaves in Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.  The circle is punched with a 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and stamped with the background words from the stamp set.  Some Linen Thread and a Very Vanilla button are the final touches.

Congratulations to the team at The Paper Players on their great success.  Thanks for all the inspiration you have provided to so many!

Back on Wednesday with a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  I appreciate you stopping by!

Jen, gorgeous card. I love the touch of red, it really lifts the colors. I love this set and you really showed me why I need to use it more often! The crumb cake base is so restful and a wonderful change from from the usual white or vanilla. I also love the button and twine, it continues to add to the organic feel of the card. The repetition of circles makes me happy 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words! We thank you for joining us so regularly and are so pleased that you are able to join the Paper Players for our centennial challenge!
