Birthday Card for a Friend


Things have been pretty busy and up in the air for the last several months, almost all good things though!!!

This will be a quick post tonight, just to share a birthday card I made for a friend of mine whose birthday is today! Happy Birthday Kathleen!

I stamped the Impression Obsession Garden Cake with JetBlack Stazon, let it dry and colored it with my Prisma Pencils. No Gamsol! (Karen Lockhart would be proud of me!!)

I sponged Aegean Blue Versamagic and Thatched Straw Versamagic around the edges of the image, leaving a white space right next to the image. I used a flower punch to punch the corners.

I stamped a little flower from Heidi Grace using Versamark on the Bazzill Raindrop card base. Terribly difficult to see in the photo. The dp is from Basic Grey, Wiseteria (6x6) pad.

Little Twinkles were glued on the flowers using a Zig 2 way glue pen.

That's about it.

Thank you for stopping by!
