MOJO489 Avant Garden Celebrate You

 Happy Saturday, everyone!  Hope your weekend is going well so far!  I have another birthday card today; this one uses Avant Garden because it will be retiring soon and I want to get some use out of it!  I used the Mojo Monday sketch:
I started with an Island Indigo card base and added some retired Sahara Sand DSP and a circle of Blooms and Bliss DSP:

I noticed that the flower from Avant Garden was very similar to the flowers on the DSP, so I stamped one, along with the center, and cut them out for my embellishment.  The Island Indigo ink was a little too blue, so I inked up my stamp with a wee little bit of Mint Macaron first, then added the Indigo ink, and I think I managed to match it fairly well!  I added a pretty sentiment from Suite Sayings, a few little speckles, a scalloped circle mat, and it was done!

Have a great weekend and be blessed!
I am scrambling to find pictures of Cassidy---we haven't been doing any fun activities, and it's been too cold outside, but I did find this one from before St Patrick's Day!  My friend Maryanne made these wee little leprechaun boxes filled with candy for all my stampers at my last Cards & Coffee....Cassidy thought they were really fun, and so did I!

Maryanne is amazing!  Thanks, Maryanne!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for the next Paper Players challenge too!  See you then!
