I used my MISTI and my wreath template to make the oval background pattern. For the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, my S stands for Shades of green.
I used the small oval from the Gina K. Designs (GKD) Holiday Frame Filler stamp set and stamped it in GKD Jelly Bean Green, Grass Green and Fresh Asparagus ink.
I stamped the sentiment, from the GKD Birthday Blessings stamp set, in GKD Jet Black Amalgam ink and used my Cut-Align to cut it out. I brushed the Fresh Asparagus ink cube along the edge of the sentiment piece to give it some definition against the background. I layered this on the background, which I had matted with Fresh Asparagus cardstock, and placed the whole thing onto a white card base.
