Today is Cousin Helen's birthday and I needed a card that was relatively flat to mail and not too "fussy, frilly or cute". Helen is a Stampin' Up demonstrator in England and one of the top 20 demonstrators there! Her blog is full of lovely cards and ideas and even a special "Caturday" post every Saturday - check it out. I knew I had to use a SU image on her card and I think I remember Fifth Avenue Floral was one of her favourites.
The layout is CPS 264 - this is the first time I've done one of their sketches and I really must do more. I stamped the flower in SU Marina Mist and the cardstock is also SU Marina Mist with some Early Espresso. The designer paper from MME Lost & Found pad. I used my new By The Letters die-namic for the letters and loved the way Karen overlapped hers on this card so I did the same!
I'd love to post a photo of Cousin Helen and me from my recent trip there, but we didn't take one, so instead I'll post a photo of something else I love about England - the countryside - and no, I didn't climb to the top of this! :)
Happy Birthday Helen!
