Artiste & Ivy Lane Birthday Card

Last week I held a summer "stamp camp" for my customers to help me use up the retiring (and already retired) stash that I have on hand.  I'm not sure that we made a dent in my stash, but I did make this lovely (if I do say so myself) card for a friend who had a birthday this past Sunday.
My card uses the (retiring) Ivy Lane paper pack and the Ariste CTMH/Cricut cartridge and coordinating stamp set/collection.  Hollyhock and Smoky Plum inks are a great match for this pretty paper, which is only available until the end of the month!  The flowers are from my contraband stash, but I did add a CTMH pink glitter gem.

I am linking up my card to the Cards in Envy Happy Birthday challenge and the new Take Heart challenge blog.  Their first challenge is "anything goes," but I think my palette also matches their optional color challenge.  I love when a challenge (or two or three) inspires me to create!  I'm also thankful that I got to get some creating done before school started for me.  Can you believe teachers in my system went back to work yesterday?!?  Thank goodness this was a short week. ;)  Celebrate something this weekend, okay?

This is a gorgeous card! Did you run the cupcake paper through a paper crimper? Love it! Thanks for sharing with us at TakeHeartIdeas.

No crimper- that is just the stamp on patterned paper!

Haley, it really gives it a dimensional look!
