For my card, I’m using the new Birthday Blessings set. Isn’t this a wonderful tea cup full of flowers? I colored it w/ markers and added a little iridescent watercolor medium on top for a little sparkle. I used the out of the box Nestie technique to cut it out.  The purple background was run through the Grand Calibur with an embossing folder. The ivory/yellow panel was stamped with pigment ink using one of my favorite past releases, Crocheted Background. A little strip of the Crochet Border from Serve the Lord was added under the olive green panel. A matching Crochet circle was stamped and die cut using the matching dies. I used the first part of the sentiment for my little tags and the complete sentiment from the set is on the inside. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

From here, hop to the fantastic Betty Wright’s blog!
