Sweet Girl Birthday


Today i have a Birthday card for you, perfect for a young girl! I am linking up the card to Moxie Fab Birthday Sketch Challenge and Penny Black's Beat the Heat!


The challenge for Moxie Fab is to either All Stamped or Or No Stamping. And as you can see i went with stamping!!

I stamped the Penny Black Flowers for Mimi in black ink 3 times on white cardstock. Next i punched a 1 3/4 circle and used the negative space to trace a circle over my stamped images, that way i would only color the areas that i planned to punch out.

I used distress inks and water to color the 3 images. Then i punched them out. Next i adhered them to my pink cardbase with foam dots.

Next i stamped happy birthday, masking each word before stamping (the stamp has Happy over Birthday). Last i added a sparkly gemstone in between Happy and Birthday. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

  7. Love how you used the sweet little Mimi image to peek through your hot pink cardbase. Good use of the stamp & also on the sentiment, the way that you did it. Followed you via the PB emails, saw that your name was Dana (which is my daughter's name!) and became your newest follower. Hope you'll find time to visit me as well.
