Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday -Thank You

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

My oldest daughter, Emily, 11, has been part of Odyssey of the Mind for the second year in a row this school year.  They’re a great team and they always choose the problem with balsa wood.

They came in first place this past Saturday at the regionals competition and they’re on to States in about a month!

As a way to say thank you, I made this card for her coach.  Of course, I had to get a little wood on the card. 😉

My cards with Pool Party cardstock.  I took a panel of Soft Suede cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set to stamp a “wreath” in Garden Green and Soft Suede ink.  I stamped the flowers in Pool Party ink on a separate piece of Whisper white cardstock (stamping off for the lighter shade flowers) and fussy cut them out, adhering a few with Stampin Dimensionals.

I cut out a small banner of Coffee Break DSP to adhere over the “wreath.”  I stamped the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Soft Suede ink and adhered it over the banner using Stampin Dimensionals.  I wrapped around a Pool Party Baker’s Twine bow and adhered everything down.
