Rose Garden Birthday

StampinMojo, Rose Garden Thinlits, PPA283

Each year I doing something different for associates’ birthdays. Last year everyone received some type of SU box, pillow, bag, etc filled with chocolates. This year I am doing individual birthday cards with a scratch off lottery ticket. So I have been busy creating birthday cards for the January birthdays.

I could not wait to use the Rose Garden thinlits. The rose reminds me of the beautiful rose frame we had in last year’s occasions catalog embellishment kit.


When I saw this week’s Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge I thought it would showcase the rose perfectly. The vivid pink of the Melon Mambo and the soft Mint Macaron against the black card stock is so striking.

I used the smaller rose and the separate leaf branch. I cut off one leaf on each branch so I could tuck the branches under the rose so it looked like one rose branch.

The sentiment is from one of my favorites stamp sets – Endless Birthday Wishes. I adore the font. If you don’t have this set you should click shop now . This is such a versatile set. I forgot to add this to the product list below – the sentiment is stamped with the Basic Black Archival ink. LOVE this new black ink pad!

I do hope you play along with the Pals this week. The colors are so fun.

Thanks for stopping by!
