Sweet Pea Stitched Birthday

Today's card features an explosion of texture. The Rose Red flower and Old Olive leaves are all from the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt available in the Occasions Mini now through April 30. You can click on the photo to enlarge it and you will see that the dots accenting the large flower and in the middle of the sentiment circle are also felt accents that you receive in the Sweet Pea collection.

This collection of felt accents is easy to work with. It looks like you spent all day sewing with all the detailed stitching, but actually, you simply pop them out the package and adhere them to your project with glue dots.

For further texture and dimension, the background layers of Certainly Celery and Pretty In Pink cardstock were embossed using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder.

To blend the two background colors I added a slip of Chocolate Chip polka dot paper from the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper pack and a border of Whisper White cardstock punched with the Pinking Hearts Border. These layers are tied off with Rose Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon.

The sentiment is from Think Happy Thoughts a collection of six inter-changeable circle stamps and accents that you can find in the Idea Book & Catalog. Very fun to mix and match this set.

I have two more Sweet Pea cards to share with you over the weekend. For now, here is the recipe for my Sweet Pea birthday card.
