"L" Birthday

Hi, again!  I'm on a roll this week!  LOL.  Today I'm posting for Stamp TV's Monday Challenge, which calls for making a card using a 1, 2, or 3 letter monogram.  Since I needed a birthday card for a friend, I thought of making it using her first name initial: L.  Here's the card I came up with:

I did not have any large scale letters to use for the monogram so I decided to make my own by cutting the design paper to shape the "L".  I cut out two stripes and shaped as shown.  I love the colors of the paper (Ooh La La paper stack from My Mind's Eye).  Gina K. Designs' Jelly Bean Green card stock coordinated perfectly with this paper.  The flower stamp is also from GKD (sorry, I got it from a grab bag prize and I don't know the name of the stamp set it came from).

The card's front is shorter than the back so I placed some of the DP inside of the card (just at the bottom) to add some interest.  I also punched the edge of the card to make it stand out.

Well, that's it for today, my stamping friends!  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a bright day!
