This past Saturday, I had my Spring/Summer Idea Book Celebration & Crop and one of my sweet team members, Michele McCants, gave me a birthday card using the February Stamp of the Month, which you can see below. I just love the background she made with one of the stamps in this set and her monochromatic color choice of Tulip. So, I could say that she inspired me in my creation this month. I decided to go for a clean and classic look with a Black & Cranberry color combination.

This is my first time creating note cards along with a card to make a gift set. I love how they turned out, especially with Valentine’s just around the corner. I believe these would make a fabulous wedding gift as well.

Here is the birthday card that Michele made for me…
