Floral Friday – Oh So Succulent Birthday Card

Today its the birthday of one of my best friends and to celebrate I made her this card, I hope she has received it before she reads this. I chose to use the new Oh So Succulent bundle  from the new Spring/Summer catalogue. The stamps and dies have a mixture of combinations which can be used to make flowers and other succulent plants along with some greetings in two lovely fonts.

I stuck to a colour combination of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral with a hint of Tip Top Taupe to match with the co-ordinating Succulent Garden dsp. Calypso Coral is not one of my favourite colours as I’m just not an orange/peach kind of girl but in small doses I think it looks okay. Here is a close up of the flowers

I’ve added some enamel shapes just to finish the card off and keep it fairly flat  for posting. I’m looking forward to playing some more with this versatile new set.

Happy Crafting
