Birthday Flowers

Hey everyone!  Today I have a card to share that I made in honor of my sweet friend and fellow DT teamie, Sandie (of London Days).  It was her birthday on the 16th and there's a Linky party going on at Kylie is Addicted to Stamps and a special challenge at TIME OUT Challenges.  I had already made and mailed off a card to Sandie but I wanted to participate so I came up with this card....

First, I stamped my flowers (Clearly Besotted) and then masked them off.  Using my flourish stencil (STAMPlorations), I sponged silver Delicata ink (you can see the shimmer better in the detail picture) lightly fading it out.  I removed the mask and coloured in my flowers with my Soectrum Noir markers (LV1, LV2, LV3, DG2, DG4 & the Blender).  Then I stamped the Happy (STAMPlorations) in black Versafine ink and the Birthday (STAMPlorations) in Seedless Preserves Distress ink.  Hope you had a fabulous birthday Sandie!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit today and I hope you'll come back soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
