Jewel Tone Birthday Card

In the midst of all this bright and summery crafting I've been doing lately I took time out to make a dark and dank birthday card.
Okay, it isn't dark and dank, but that was my first thought after I made it.  After pondering it for awhile I realized that it really had rich jewel tones and the card was perfect, and perfect for who I needed to send it to.  It only jarred me because it wasn't made with all the bright and airy colors I've been using lately.  In a couple of months from now when we are all doing fall cards, I wouldn't have thought twice about this card.

And yes, we're back to the bathing beauties set.  You didn't think I'd leave them alone for long did you?!

The Fine Print: All products by A Muse Studio. Stamps used-Bathing Beauties. Cardstock used-Squash, heather, hibiscus, eucalyptus, and sugar. Other products-heather satin ribbon, fiesta designer paper, and gold sequins (retired).
