Happy Birthday card





Hi everyone! I'm here today with a new card creation for Stampers Dream. I'm just going to jump right into it...

I created this card using Basic Grey's Wander papers and the JustRite Forever Friends Cling Stamp set. I took some brown cardstock and dry embossed it with one of my Tim Holtz texture fades. I love a card with lots of texture and interest (can you tell?) LOL!

I am officially addicted to the Kaisercraft Paper Blooms in the Honey color. These are my favs next to the Fairy Floss color! I added two of them accompanied by a single 1/2 inch white rose from I Am Roses. I added a light green Webster's Pages Sparkler to add a little bit of glam and accented the bunch with some leaves punched out with my Martha Stewart punch. And do you spy that luscious May Arts Brown Crochet/Velvet ribbon? This is my first time using it and it is just beautiful!



a close up...



The sentiment is cut out using Spellbinders Labels Five and I used the flourish from the Fleur de Lis Doily Motifs set to frame the sentiment. I popped on two Crystazzi crystals on the flourishes and edged all the pieces with Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain to finish it off.



Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have a ton of projects coming your way soon, so be sure to check back. ♡

Have a great weekend!

hugs,

I have been planning to get that Butterfly Garden stack and now I know for sure that I will. I love your style and have to admit that I use it as inspiration for my own crafting. Thank you for providing that inspiration.
