Flowers for Your Birthday

Posted in Challenges, It's your Birthday at 9:09 pm by happygiggles

Hello again!  I’m back today with the card I made for the Sketch challenge at Splitcoast.  I just loved this sketch!  Gave me a chance to use some patterned paper!  Notice I didn’t use my Cuttlebug.  See…I’m not completely obsessed!

Anywho, I started this card with a layer of dark brown from Papersource then added a bit of River Rock then the patterned paper!  I got the left hand side paper from Michael’s recently.  The other flower paper is from my local scrapbook store.  The strip with the sentiment is simply, more brown with more river rock then a touch of very Vanilla.  The layers with the stamped flowers are brown, then some Blush blossom, and some more Very Vanilla.  I coloured in the flowers with my water colour pencils then blended them with my blender pen.  Oh yeah, there’s a bit of chocolate satin ribbon running through the middle.  I didn’t like the gaps that were there, so I covered them up!

Thanks for looking!
