Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Birthday Card

Hello my peeps! I am so thrilled today to be a Guest Designer at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog #188! The theme for their challenge is "Family". Here is what I created for it...

My daughter's birthday was October 25 and I used the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Tea Together, Enjoy Life and Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Sets to make her card. 

Remember when I was doing the One Sheet Wonders (OSW) back in October? It was a set of 9 projects from one piece of 12" x 12" paper.  Well I couldn't show you the third one until now! 

Really, the paper does all the work! Measurements are at the end of this post, along with the product list. My card base is Mossy Meadow. 

I have a mat of Blackberry Bliss card stock with a piece of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Specialty Paper adhered to it.

The sentiment is from the Tea Together Stamp Set. I created the dots with my Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Marker to frame the square. 

I added three Pearl Basic Jewels to dress up the front a little.

For the inside...

I have a Blackberry Bliss mat and a Whisper White mat. I stamped the top sentiment and butterflies with stamps from the Enjoy Life Stamp Set. The "Happy Birthday" is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set. The inks I used were Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will visit The Paper Girls to see all their wonderful projects. While you're there, take time to enter their challenge!
