Blue and White Birthday

I was so pleasantly surprised when a lovely lady gifted me with an embossing folder from Stampin' Up! called Textured Impressions-Vintage Wallpaper. I love it and I took this folder and inked it up with Gina K. Designs Powder Blue ink before I embossed it and created a beautiful background for my card design.

I had a base card of Powder Blue card stock and added this panel to the front of it but first I added some green ribbon which corresponded fairly close to the color of the leaves inked in Gina K. Designs Grass Green on the white card stock oval that I had die cut. The oval is a Cheery Lynn Designs one and the leaves and the flowers on the oval are all from the Gina K. Designs Frames and Flowers 1 set from the Flowers and Frames TV Kit released this month.

In the kit there are dies to cut the flowers and leaves with but since I never can do a decent job of aligning them up right I stamped the leaves directly onto the oval and then stamped the flowers onto another piece of white card stock and fussy cut them to make them work. Before I added them I shaped them a bit and popped them when they were fastened to the oval. I colored the flowers with Bic Mark-It alcohol ink markers.

I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and kit in the Powder Blue ink. I finished the card by adding the blue stars below the sentiment. They looked better in person then they do on the photo. In the photo the blues don't quite match.

I am entering this in the Mix It Up Monday challenge this week which is called Oh, My Stars! Thus the reason for adding the stars to my card.

I always appreciate your visits to my blog and love each and every comment left here.

God bless,

May Rudolph Days Challenge

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
