Winter Birthday

Well, I know it is now officially winter, but I still like sending flowers on my female birthday cards.  So, I decided to use dark colors and ink my flowers with Baked Brown Sugar Ink to give them a dried look.  Maybe not exactly a winter flower, but I still think it is appropriate to send this time of year.

My card base of Whisper White Card Stock was layered with Rich Razzleberry and Natural Composition Specialty Designer Paper. I added a piece of Baked Brown Sugar 3/8" Ruffle Trim and then my stamped and punched flowers.  To my sentiment, I sponged some additional Baked Brown Sugar ink because I thought leaving it with the all white background made it stand out a bit too much. 

The Natural Composition Paper has such pretty, glossy designs right on it that you don't have to add or emboss anything else to it.  It comes with 12 different designs, perfect for so many occasions.
