Flower Soft Birthday Verse

I made this card for a dear friend, Cyndi, for her birthday this week! When I think of Cyndi, I always think of bright, cheerful colors to match her bubbly personality! Today's color challenge over at Splitcoast was perfect for her card: Cameo Coral, Ballet Blue, and Garden Green. The verse is from Stampin' Up's "Elegant Inspirations". The sentiment was stamped in Garden Green and the edges of the oval frame are sponged in Ballet Blue. I followed the instructions on SCS Resources page for a flap card, but to fit the Flower Soft frame, I made the card 4 1/2" wide instead of 3 1/2". This is very easy....you HAVE to give it a try! I trimmed the oval frame by hand and used small scallop scissors to round the card flap. Used Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder for the top and bottom flaps. The ribbon was adhered with sticky strip all the way around the card (and under the sentiment oval panel). Finished with Sweet Pea Flower Soft and pearl stickers. This may not be considered CAS (clean and simple) to some, but it sure is to me.....and that is a great relief for once!!! This card also qualifies for the sketch challenge over at pagemaps.com....you have until May 13th....check it out! Thanks for stopping by! God Bless!
