Wishing You a Wonderful Birthday


Today i'm added to my birthday card stash! I made a card for Curtain Call Inspiration - Watermelon Wonder. I'm also submitting it to Moxie Fab's Birthday Card Challenge.

My mom and i went to a scrapbook show this past weekend and of course we got lots of stamping goodies! I couldn't wait to play with a new Memory Box die!

I picked out 3 pink ink pads and 1 light green. I rubbed each one on watercolor paper, big enough that i could die cut out a flower for each color. I also die cut 2 from the watercolor paper without any color.

As i die cut these, i saved all the little pieces that you usually throw away. To make my flower background i adhered the thin flower die cut to my cardbase and then used a different color or the white to fill in the little pieces.

Then i die cut a banner and stamped the sentiment, masking the word wonderful so i could stamp it in pink. I also added two rhinestones at each end of the sentiment. Last i adhered the banner with foam tape.

Also don;t forget to check out my cards today at The Card Kitchen Kit blog!
