It's Your Birthday-PP294

May 8, 2016

HAPPY Mother's Day to all the Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts and Care takers of children and pets!  I hope you enjoy this special day and find a moment to do something that makes your heart happy! 

Now, it's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The amazingly talented Jaydee is our hostess this week.  She has a beautiful Spring color palette for all of us.  We can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created on a white card base  The top layers is a retired SU paper (So Saffron) cut with the Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies from SugarPea Designs.  The banner is cut using the Stitched Party Banners Die from Lawn Fawn on white card stock.  The flower bouquet is from WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlias.  I stamped it with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  A water brush was used on the flowers and leaves using Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizazz inks.  So Saffron was washed around the bouquet for added color.  A big white bow and a few sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added for fun.  The sentiment is from Altenew-Beautiful Lady Stamp Set stamped in Black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Wink of Stella is added on the bouquet for shine and sparkle.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!
