Fabulous Birthday Card

This is a simple and pretty birthday card that is fun to stamp and requires few supplies. I believe the color scheme of Basic Grey and Kiwi Kiss is neutral enough that it could pass for a masculine greeting card as well. The pretty Basic Grey Designer Series Paper is from the Urban Garden collection which also includes soothing colors like Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy-again, very pretty.

This card is a Kiwi Kiss card base with layers of Basic Grey cardstock and Urban Garden Designer Series Paper tied off with an accent of Kiwi Kiss Silk ribbon. For texture & accent, I pierced holes along the bottom edge of the Basic Grey cardstock using the paper piercer from the Stampers' Tool Kit and the Mat Pack. The flower image from the recently retired Fabulous Flowers stamp set is stamped in Kiwi Kiss and the sentiment is from On Your Birthday and stamped in Basic Grey.
