So Succulent Birthday Card

This is another card Patty and I did together. I found this on Pinterest and loved it. For the card on the right I used Garden Green which is NOT used in the Succulent Garden Designer Paper. So, for the card on the left, I used Old Olive which is in this paper, and matches better. I was never a fan of succulents before working with this bundle. I love how all the stamps have matching Framelits. The basket is from the Basket Bunch Framelits and works perfectly with the Succulents.
Stampin' Up! did a fabulous job with this Suite of products, Stamp, framelits, designer paper and ribbon.
This was a super easy card to put together. I just stamped the flowers and die cut them, then arranged them in the basket.
You can really see in this photo how I "winked" them with the Clear Wink of Stella. The basket was then mounted on one of the Stitched Shape Framelits (I LOVE these dies). I did stamp a few of those little flowers that also comes in the stamp set. The sentiment comes in this set and stamped in Archival Black Ink.

I think that basket is a great addition to the Succulent bundle....very cute how you punched the flowers and tucked them into the basket! Love the paper and your ideas for using this bundle are wonderful.....thanks for sharing everything with us! Enjoy the sunny/cold day and stay dry this weekend!

I really like both shades of green, but agree that the softer green works a bit better with the DSP! Great creation!
