Rustic Birthday

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It was pretty busy around here.  My husband installed a fence along the front of our house this weekend.  It looks great!  It is the perfect backdrop for all of my little touches.  I'm thinking of tying cornstalks to the post for fall, lighted garland for Christmas, some kind of lighted vine for summer....just some ideas!  Anyhoo, I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made.  I used some new goodies and was very pleased with the results.  Hope you like it!



I love the soft color combination on this card.  Very muted and understated but I like that.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Amy, I love the card! It so soft and pretty. I am wondering about the cute little pitcher for the greenery/flowers. I don't recall seeing this on PTI and wondered where it came from. Is it a die cut? The colors and such are just so perfect. Love the homey touches. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Thank you for such a sweet comment! The pitcher is from the Iconic Images set from Papertrey Ink. To my knowledge it was only available during the Stamp-a-Faire weekend in July. You had to place an order of $100 or more to receive it online that weekend or if you went to the Stamp-a-Faire, you could get it there. I simply stamped the pitcher onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out with scissors and my Xacto knife. Then I popped it up on Stampin Dimensionals.

Hope that helps
Amy
