Happy Birthday, With a Splash

I'm always wanting a good stash of birthday cards!

I 'm entering this into two challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge #75 (info HERE).   The theme is "Black & White with a Splash".  The splash being a bit of color! I was totally inspired by Lisa Tilson at http://www.mycardtrip.co.uk/  She is one of the guest designers for the challenge and her floral cards are so beautiful!!

Flickr's LOVE!--Handmade Cards "Anything Goes" July challenge (info HERE).

I do love playing with stencils and embossing paste!  This SSS stencil is so beautiful!

I used a glossy embossing paste and the shine is so pretty!


I do appreciate you looking and leaving your comments for me!

Supplies:

  • Simon Says Stamp products: More Spring Flowers stamps/dies; Thoughtful Messages stamp for sentiment; Circular Lace stencil
  • Embossing paste:  Dreamweaver Glossy Black
  • Spectrum Noir markers:  CR5, DR5, DR7
