I never seem to have enough birthday cards around. Here's one I made that has what sounds like an Irish Blessing as the sentiment. Although this stamp set is quite old, I still love the silhouette flower images and sentiment. When I first got this stamp set I cut the long sentiment in half so it would fit better. I goofed and cut it one line too soon as you'll notice. Of course it still makes sense, but I didn't mean to break up the phrase. Here's what it says:
May you have enough happiness
to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong,
enough trials to keep you human,
and enough hope to make you happy.
The CTMH Ariana paper pack combines the red, pink, green, dark gray and blues to give a lot of possibilities for cards. I cut a tag using Cricut Design Space and I'm pretty sure it came from Artiste. I turned it upside down so that the hole was under the ribbon. The retired stamp set I used is called "Treasure Life." I used Garden Green and Sky inks to stamp the leaves and flowers on the tag. I inked the lower stem/leaf portion with green first, then I inked the top flower portion with Sky blue ink.
I've made quite a few Ariana cards for our card workshop this weekend. Later this week I'll put them all in one post for my workshop ladies to refer to.
