I know, I know, it’s a little early to say good bye to any of the 2017-2019 In colors. But, let’s face facts, they are not going to around that much longer. I decided that I needed to give Fresh Fig a little love before it departs. Such a great color.

Did you notice? I paired the Fresh Fig with another soon to depart color, Lemon-Lime Twist.

I also made this card for this week’s Global Design Project. What a great sketch. Click on the banner below to go to the site and be inspired by some great cards.

Design Notes for Fresh Fig Card:

I like quick and easy cards. I  t’s fun to fuss and add layers and heat emboss and go on but lots of times, I make quick and easy cards. This is one of them. The only – easy – special thing I did was to emboss the two layers with the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder. A little sprinkle of sequins and some Wink of Stella on the candles and I was done.

Oh, yes, there was the stamping. The Piece of Cake stamp set is filled with fun sentiments and images. Here’s what I selected for the inside.

And here’s a close up look at the stamp set. It’s from the Occasions Catalog so you still have until June 3 to get this one.
