Another Birthday Card

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made this card using Soft Stone and Royal Velvet cardstocks.  I have found myself using Soft Stone a lot lately.  I stamped the Text Style background in Charcoal ink.  I wanted it to be more muted so I rubbed New Canvas ink all over it directly from the ink pad.   I then layered the flowers from Botanical Silhouettes on top.  I used Palette L’Amour Red and Momento Grape Jelly inks for the flowers and New Leaf ink for the leaves.  I used a strip of vellum to stamp the sentiment and then scored two lines on the top and bottom and adhered it to the front of my card.  I finished off the card by adding some pure poppy grosgrain ribbon to the top of the card and some clear gems to the flowers.

So what is everyone up to?  It has been busy in our household lately.  We celebrated my husband’s birthday yesterday and we will celebrate my youngest son’s birthday on Saturday.  There always seems to be a birthday to celebrate, but that is one of the fun things of having a big family. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Beautiful! Love the blues and reds and the CAS beauty of this card . . .reminds me of the scripture, "The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of the Lord stands forever." Gorgeous!
