Birthday Flowers

Hi there, and happy Thursday. Wow this week is just flying by! Well today I wanted to share a card I made using the Flower Bouquet image from QKR Stampede. I guess I was hoping that flowers would help me feel like spring...since we just got another 6 inches of snow dumped on us. Here is the card I came up with. I started by stamping the image with black ink onto white CS. I colored with colored pencils and Gamsol. I trimmed it down, and layered onto the PP (which is from Close to my Heart). On the white base, I put the orangish/peachish color PP on, and then layered the green piece onto that. Next I stamped the Happy Birthday image from QKR Stampede using blue ink. When I stamped that, I "accidentally" got some blue on the block, and it left the little smudge...SOOOOO...I "fixed" it. I ink distressed the rest of the I actually liked the card better after I did that. Last I added some little blue heat set gems.

Now a little sneak peek of something you may be seeing very soon here on my blog. This was a project I started at my MOPS group today. I thought I knew what I was going to do with it when I got there, and then totally changed my mind. So I brought it home, and got to work. So be sure to check back and see what I ended up doing with this...thing.

You know what I always say "There are no mistakes, just more chances to embellish and/or be creative"
Will be interested to see what you have when you finish that MOPS project.
