Blue Leaf Birthday

Hello Everyone.  Today's card was guided by the designer paper used--Autumn Vine.  I liked the leaf and color scheme.  I needed a masculine birthday card and this is what I came up with.  The panel stamped with leaves in more mustard ink is also dotted with early espresso marker using the spritzing tool.  I love the texture this tool gives.  The main leaf was made with a leaf die and stamp from PTI.  Espresso ribbon, white brads and some textural embossing finish this one off.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around.

Much Needed Rest

I am in love with this sweet stamp set called On My Couch from PTI.  There are a couple of coordinating dies that punch out the side chair and a sofa that's also a part of the stamp set.  It turns out the cutest images. 
I stamped the chair in mambo melon, the rug in pear pizzaz and the table in early espresso inks from Stampin Up.  Look at what's on the side table.  It's a steaming cup of coffee and a stack of books just waiting for a good sit down and relax time.  This is going to a friend of mine that recently had surgery.  I hope it brightens her day. 
Thanks for stopping by.
