Fall Flower Birthday

  I was out doing some errands last week and stopped in at Home Goods to try to find what I was looking for.  One of the displays had a group of arm chairs and one of them caught my eye.  It was a chevron patterned fabric with the colors of Soft Sky, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Early Espresso.

  Is that a great color combo for fall or what?  I snapped a photo so I wouldn't forget once I got to the stamp room.  I was going to go with chevrons too but then came across this sketch at CAS(s) this Sketch and decided to go the clean and simple route.  A fall birthday card is always needed and the Flower Patch stamp set with it's bold designs would be a perfect focal point.

  A simple card but some details to note:

  The rhinestones are colored with the lightest Coastal Cabana Blendabilities marker and they match the Soft Sky wonderfully.

  The flower is popped up for dimension so the clean and simple design doesn't look so flat.

  I used the Festive Piercing Pack template that coordinates with the Window frame framelits to make the frame design behind the flower.  It's an easy way to add detail without adding more layers.  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
