Happy Birthday

Hello Friends! Today, my youngest is celebrating her 18th birthday so I have a birthday card to share...

I absolutely adore this stamp set and papers from Stampin' Up! There is a stamp in the set that gives that watercolor swatch impression. No coloring on this one...just card stock, patterned paper, stamps and ink. This was super quick to put together and I just love the soft tones on the patterned paper. I used a texture plate on the cantaloupe card stock and adhered that to the card base. Then I did a bit of stamping. I tied on a linen thread bow, added a few sequins and a sentiment and my card was done.

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by.


Blessings~

The embossing is fabulous. I love the delicate, fresh colors. The flower stamp is quite striking, yet soft and feminine. Happy Birthday to your daughter :)
