Happy Birthday Amber!

I was cleaning off my desk, ready to give up for the day and leave my RubberRoom when I came across two scraps of this designer paper.  I noticed one piece was cut exactly right to fit an A2 size card.  It made perfect sense to stop and take the time to tape it down on the front of some cardstock so it would not be lost in the shuffle.  Now I can retire...
Have you ever done that?  You are tired, ready to quit for the day - just cleaning up a little before you turn off the lights... but, as I stared at the paper on the front of the card, I got to thinking about what image would work with it.  And as my mojo tweaked my brain - I dug around in a stamp drawer & found this Magenta stamp - 'Heart Flower'.  Ok, my mojo & energy level are both back in play.  Stamped the image, colored it with Copics:

It was then fussy cut, the center of the flower sculpted [dry embossed] from the front and the leaves from the back.  It was adhered to the front of the card using both a super strong double sided tape to hold the center down and foam tape to elevate the petals.
There was exactly enough left of the 2nd piece of scrap DP to decorate the sentiment panel on the inside and the envelope flap.  Perfect - used every bit of it!  A Memory Box die was used for the sentiment & added to the inside.  Then, and only then, did my mojo loosen its grip on me... I got up without cleaning another iota off my desk, turned out the lights and went to bed.

Create wildly and color with abandon!
