Gingham and Sweet William Birthday Card

When my hubby and I first married I was so excited to have a huge yard in the country, I planted about every flower imaginable. One of them was Sweet William, like my hubby's name. Most Sweet Williams come in shades of pink with white, although there are some that are lavender or purple.

I chose the ODBD Sweet William stamp set to make the flower for this card using the color challenge they have for this month. The sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments was perfect for this card and I chose to use gingham patterned papers with 3 shades of violet and one of yellow, including a yellow gingham ribbon, mostly very old from CTMH. The purple glitter sparkles and glitter hearts are also from CTMH.  I used the ODBD All Occasion Sentiments for the greeting.

 

The colors of this card remind me of spring! I'm sharing this with the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #282 and Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #256.
