I love mixing Bermuda Bay with Wood Texture!  If I had my way with decorating, my entire house would be some shade of teal with a dark wood!  My style is definitely reflected well in this card.  I also love rustic charm paired with a Northwoods feel (hence the use of the Buffalo Check stamp on so many recent creations).

I love mixing Pool Party and Bermuda Bay as a light and dark shade of teal on the flowers, it compliments the card so well.  The font in the Happy Birthday sentiment, part of the Botanical Bliss Stamp Set, is so lovely and perfect for this card. Flagging the end with the Banner Triple Punch (my most loved punch) adds just the right touch.
