June Birthday



You aren't going to believe this - I MADE A CARD!! The card making drought may be broken! OK OK - I admit it - it was a gf's birthday today so I simply had to make something for her. She loves handmade cards and I really wanted to be sure she had something nice.

Recipe: I used all Stampin' Up materials for this one - the stamp set is Blooming with Happiness. I used sponge daubers to make the background on glossy white cardstock and to colour the cake. Where I wanted bling I used Crystal Effects over watercolour crayons/the daubing. A little pink gingham ribbon finished it off. The cardstock is Pale Plum and Certainly Celery and the inks are black Stazon, Lavender Lace, Pixie Pink, and Certainly Celery.

I love how you used the sponge daubers. What a clever idea! I also like the different colors behind the cake very soft and subtle, yet they add so much interest.
