WWC173 - Tenia's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

This week our WWC Design Team Host is the wonderful Tenia Nelson.  If you've never visited Tenia's blog before, I hope you'll click on her link  and check out her many colourful and unique card designs and projects.  She has such a modern and fresh take on her sketches.

Here Is My Card: 
My Feminine Project for this week features the Abstract Impressions stamp set just released in the new catalogue.  This is a two-step photopolymer stamp set that is part of the "Garden Impressions Suite".  I had fun making this birthday card, and just couldn't wait to share this card with you.  I hope you'll enjoy it too.
I've combined the Basketweave Embossing Folder, new Designer InColour Paper, Granny Apple Green cardstock and the beautiful two-step rose from the Abstract Impressions stamp set to create this card front.  Luv, Luv, Luv it!

The inside of my card features more stamping with the Abstract Impressions floral stamps and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the recently retired Stylized Birthday.  It's a very bright and cheery card.  
I love the new 6 x 6 Designer Series InColor Paper.   The designs are tiny which is a nice change and the papers appear really vibrant. The banner is in the Grapefruit Grove dsp and I paired it with the new Granny Apple Green card stock from the Brights Color Collection to make this happy card.  
This  banner sentiment from the Birthday Wishes for You stamp set that carried over from the Spring Occasions catalogue is fast becoming one of my favourite "to go to" stamped images.  I've stamped it on Basic Black and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  There's just no mistaking the sentiment when it's contrasted like this.  Luv it!  
Supplies:
Stamp Sets:  Abstract Impressions, Birthday Wishes, & Stylized Birthday

Card Stock:  Whisper White (Base 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2", and 3 1/4" x 2 5/8" white oval), Granny Apple Green (5 1/2" x 3" panel  and3 1/2" x 2 5/8" oval), Calypso Coral Oval (3" x 4") and 1/2" x 2 1/4" scrap of Basic Black
