Greenhouse Gala – Happy Birthday

Good Morning To Ya All.  We are on the count down now, just one more day and the girls are back in school.  They are in the process of moving into their own new home this week, so it has been a little topsy turvy for me.  Today I have a very simple but lovely card to share using the the Designer Paper from Greenhouse Gala #117167Stampin' Up Greehouse Gala Designer Paper Summer MiniIf you are a surfing nut like me I'm sure you have seen something similar to it.  This little pack of designer paper is filled with lots of pretty colors and flowers.  How can you go wrong with that.  For my card base I used our Whisper White #100730 cut at 4.25 x 11 inches.  Then matted a smaller piece of Baja Breeze #111352 and matted again with another piece of WW but I used the new emobssing folder called Vintage Wallpaper #120175.  Embossing folders are just great aren' t they,  They add just another layer of dimension that gives our cards that special look.  The next layer is just another piece of Baja Breeze #111352 with just a tad smaller piece of the Green House Gala DP.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370 punched with the Large Oval Punch #119855 and matted with a piece of Pear Pizzazz #119795 punched with the Scallop Oval Punch #119856.  I'm sure you're just like me and always searching for words to use on my cards.  Teeny Tiny Wishes has become a staple in my stamping room.  My only embellishment is the beautiful Olive Green Satin Ribbon #117292.  You can find it on pg 191 in the catty.  The satin ties like a dream.  That's what is so great about Stampin' Up they make it easy peasy.
