Restoration Birthday

Hi there! I have another quick birthday card to share with you today using some of that FABULOUS Restoration paper from the September Key Ingredients kit. I can't seem to stop using this kit and I'm amazed at how many projects I've already been able to create with the kit and I still haven't even used half of it!!

I kept this card pretty simple - I was literally finished in about 15 minutes!! - my favorite kind of card!! I used a Kraft cardstock base, but all of the other supplies on this card are included in the kit (well, besides the stamp set and cut file for the layered flower). I picked out 3 of my favorites from the patterned paper and cut some strips, adhering them to that beautifully textured coordinating plum cardstock with some zigzag stitching. I used my Silhouette to cut the layered flower from some more of the textured cardstock from the kit and added one of the large brads from the kit to the center. The stamped sentiment is from the In The Park stamp set from Taylored Expressions.

That's it. Like I said - nice and simple! The rest of the Key Ingredients Design Team has been sharing projects using the September Key Ingredients the past several weeks, so be sure to stop by their blogs to see what they've done with the kit:
Jessica Diedrich
Lisa Hjulberg
Lynn Put
Melody Rupple
Rosie Hughes
and of course Taylor VanBruggen
