It seems like I just fell in love with this Notes of Nature bundle, and it is leaving us already!  This is definitely a stamp set I was hoping would carry over into the new catalog or ONLINE EXCLUSIVES, but alas, it is not.  

Today's card is a collage card made with a Pebbled Path card base and the Natures Sweetness Designer Series Paper (DSP).  This DSP is a gorgeous Specialty collection with lots of gold foiled accents.  Thankfully, this DSP is carrying over into the 24-25 new Annual Catalog.  That makes me happy!

I used two different patterns of the DSP for this card -- the White and Gold "plaid" design and the Pebbled Bath and Gold script.

I used various stamps from the Notes of Nature Stamp set to create the little sentiment birthday collage on Watercolor Paper.   Can you find the birthday sentiment?   Ink colors used for stamping were Pebbled Path, Copper Clay, Mossy Meadow and Black.  After stamping a Water Painter was used to grunge up the sentiment a bit.  

I rarely make collage cards, and I don't feel like I am very good at them.  I love seeing this style of card, so I'm trying to practice and get better at them.  Do you have a style that you feel you need to practice?  The three little leaf stems were also all made with Watercolor Paper.  The larger one was stamped and then watercolored with Mossy Meadow ink.  The two other stems were die cut and then watercolored with Pebbled Path and Copper Clay.  All three were tucked behind the upper left corner to add some texture to the card.  

The sentiment and Pebbled Path Script DSP were die cut with the Scalloped Contours Dies.  This is a die set that has been around for a while, and it is retiring at the end of the month.  These dies are 30% off while supplies last.

I added my favorite birthday sentiment from Happy Labels (also on the Last Chance List)  to the inside of the card, and then finished it off with a strip of the same DSP as used on the card front.
