Big, big Happy Birthday

Last week I was asked to make a card celebrating a 100th birthday.  That’s big!  So I used this design from April’s All-Occasions Stamp-a-Stack:

This set, Big on Birthdays, is included in the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, and I say hooray for that!  What’s not included, regrettably, is this charming gingham from the retired and unavailable Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.  Whenever I used it, I declared (to anyone within earshot (whether family member or plumber) that I would love to have this print in every SU! color.  Alas, not this year.

So, since my supply is depleted, I’ve been substituting the dotted pattern from the color family Designer Series Paper Stacks with satisfying results.

The coloring is with Watercolor Pencils, and the coordinating image is perfect on the envelope flap!
