Birthday Wishing

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge, so a big congrats to Karen! She has a lovely gallery & I was very taken w/ THIS card…the colors, the layout..I just love it. Which is a little strange, because every time I try to use this blackberry or razzleberry color, I get into trouble. For me, they are very hard colors to work with. Anyway, I kept the colors & layout, but used different images & dies & made mine a birthday card.

After I white embossed the flowers & leaves onto white c/s, I sponged on the Distress inks in the purples & blues then die cut the flowers w/ the matching dies. I didn’t have paper anywhere near this purply color so I also sponged the wider strip down the side, then stamped the leaves w/ Versamark. I had to sponge the Wishing word to match, too. The white linen bg was sponged w/ the tumbled glass & the rest of the greeting was stamped w/ the Versafine purple ink. I came across a large bottle of dew drops (remember those?) so I added a few.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
