Summer birthday.

The nice weather sometimes brings the storms and over the weekend several areas around the Midwest were affected by severe weather and tornadoes. I hope everywhere in the path of the storm were spared from harm. I was setting up at the Farmer's market when the storm brew and came down hard for one hour. But then, it cleared up and things proceeded as normal.

Anyway, despite the misbehaved weather, I had to prepare some cards, and decided on a birthday theme using the CCMC 364 and Splitcoast Stampers SC 549 as my inspiration. The Sweet Lil' Things DSP is showcased here as the top paper, then I used Modern Medley and Regals Collection DSP stack. Sentiment and the flower are both from the new Birthday Blossoms stamp set. I add a button at the center of the flower just for a bit of a pop. Now, the layers were cut individually taking care to make the lower edge so I was able to layer them in this fashion. I did not use full layer for each of them, instead I cut a piece that fit the open area and cut the scallop edge. Otherwise the card can became really top heavy with so many full layers.

Thank you for visiting today and please do come back soon. Be well
