Birthday Flowers

Good morning everyone!  What a beautiful day here today, blue skies, sunshine, and perfect temperature!  So much to be thankful for.

Here is a card I just made having found out late in the day that my daughter's teacher just celebrated her birthday!  I love the happy colours. (My picture taking was not the best this morning, the light was not great).

Paper: PTI, Watercolour paper
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord, Tea Dye & Scattered Straw Distress Inks, Staz-On Jet Black
Other: Vellum, random pearls

I used one flower image from a Hero Art stamp set and inked it with various distress inks, spritzed it with pearlized water and stamped it randomly on watercolour paper.  The edges of the paper were inked gently with some Tea Dye ink.

I stamped the sentiment on Vellum and added that to the panel, it's adhered at the back of the panel so that nothing shows through.  A few pearls here and there, and the card is ready to go!

I hope to make a few more cards today for various occasions.  And you, are you crafting today or is Monday just that one day in the week where life is really busy?!

Wishing you all a fabulous day!

This card is absolutely stunning! I see that you are from Texas. I use to live right outside of Dallas, in Grand Prarie. I miss it so. I live in upstate New York and it is very different weather wise, than sunny skies that you have now. We got our first snow of the year today. Yikes!
