Birthday Passionette

Hello there how is your weekend going? Today is Susan’s Happy Day !!  and I made her a card that incorporated her favourite colour, teal. Island Indigo is a gorgeous shade of teal and I looked at the colour coach for a suggested combination. It came with Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry.

Here is Susan’s card


I made this card at the same time as made Issy’s and I was clearly  in Array of Sunshine Mode . I really like this hostess set from the main Stampin Up Catalogue.

The blooms were inked in either Baja Breeze or Pear Pizzaz ink  then rolled into the Island Indigo ink pad, this gave me the 2 tone effect.

The Rich Razzleberry layer was embossed using the Manhattan Flower embossing folder and the Big Shot machine. The corners were punched with the  Scallop Trim corner punch.

The Oval frame folder was embossed in Whisper White card stock and torn at the edges, the sentiment from the Flight of the butterfly was stamped inside it.

The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzaz and white satin ribbon completed the look. Happy Birthday dear Susan I do hope you had a great day.

Right time to get cozied up on the sofa, we had a wonderful scrapbook club session tonight and the girls spoiled me rotten with gifts flowers and stunning cards and I tried to spoil them back with a version of my famous Limoncello cake, I say a version as it had no Limoncello in it, however it did have just the right amount of Dissarono  Red heart.

I will make sure I’ll share my gifts and cards on here, oh and the wedding cake as well Smile

Till then big hugs and enjoy your weekend. xx
