Sparkly Happy Birthday

Oh, lol.....TOO close to home!!!  "Life in an Aspy house!" is all I can say.  <3 <3 <3  (Google that phrase, if you don't know what I am talking about, and you will pull up my blog post!  Ha.)

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a pretty floral card I made with some new stamps a friend gave me. I don't have the matching dies, so I left all the flowers in one piece and used it as a background stamp.

I am entering this card in the Winnie & Walter August Color Combo Challenge - Any Palette Goes. Here is the beautiful palette I used for my card colors:

I used one of my leftover Easter egg dye backgrounds in blue and pink then stamped and colored over the top of it. Finished off with Wink of Stella for non-stop sparkle!!   LOVE!!

I am also entering this card in Power Poppy Creative Confetti Challenge - Use your birthstone color for a card. My BD is in February and my birthstone is an amethyst. So I used purples in my card....which I adore!!!

Supplies used include:
Heartfelt Creations - Sun Kissed Fleur stamp set
Tsukineko - Memento Ink in London Fog
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Spectrum Noir markers
Chameleon - Color Tops
Wink of Stella pen
Glitter from stash
Canson - Mixed Media Paper Spiral Bound Notebook
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Bigger Bang Confetti stamp set (limited edition, no longer available)
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy stamp set
Versamark ink
WOW! Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White Regular
Core'dinations cardstock for card base

Hope you enjoyed my card. It was fun to color the flowers using my Chameleon Color Tops. I had experimented around with them but this is my first card using them. I am still getting the hang of the technique. Thank you so much for stopping by today!!!

  14. Beautiful card. Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to share with you God's Word in John 8:12 which says, "When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” God's Word is timely and timeless. Have a blessed weekend!
