Happy Friday night! I'm really glad the weekend is here. Starting my job this week gave me very little time to craft. I missed playing along with all my regular challenges. This evening I took some time to unwind and created this Blooming Birthday Card. I made this card for the following challenges:
- Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch
- 'ABC' Challenges: Doubly Embossed
- Bloggers Challenge: They Say it's Your Birthday
- Shopping Our Stash: I don't really need another one
Until this card I had never embossed patterned paper. I've seen others do it, but I always seem to forget to give it a try. I used a polka dot embossing folder for the dry embossing and heat embossed the sentiment with Gumball Green embossing powder by Stampin' Up! The focal image is stamped using the retired Blooming with Kindness stamp set on watercolor paper and colored using a blender pen and stampin' pads. The embosslit butterfly with pearls was the finishing touch. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
