Birthday Wishes Card

  Hello and welcome, Glad you found a little time to visit me. For today's card share I have created a birthday card. 

Sorry that the picture is a little blurry. I took it really late at night. I really shouldn't be allowed to do anything when I'm sleepy.  

On the watering can I decided to do something a little different. I decided on just tapping the alcohol markers all over instead of the usual way. Wasn't for sure if I liked the look of it or not and almost threw it away. But finally decided to use it. 

The watering can is from Pretty Pink Posh called Flower Bouquets. The sentiment comes from a set called Birthday Rose Corner from Memory box. The stitched die is from Reverse Confetti (I think). It's not in the original package anymore.

Cardstock-Calypso Coral, White and black

 Patterned paper is from a 6x6 paper pack

Alcohol Markers used- Master's Touch, Arrtx, Spectrun Noir

Blue satin ribbon

I think the finished card turned out ok and I did have fun getting to color again. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you can stop by again sometime. Have a wonderful day.

Birthday card for my Sister

  Hello so happy you stopped by. Today I am sharing a birthday card that I made for one of my sister's. Had to add some purple because her favorite color is purple. It's also my favorite.

 The birds are from a stamp and die set from Pretty Pink Posh. First time using them. Used alcohol markers to color them. I hadn't done any coloring for a while, so I had fun. I like coloring smaller images rather than larger ones. 

 I'm not very good at coloring and large images are kind of intimidating and makes me nervous.

This was my first time using this die. Can't remember where I got it. I have all of my dies out of there packaging and put in binders with magnetic sheets. 

I made the sentiment on my computer and then printed it out. It's so nice to be able to do that when you don't have the right stamp. The font is from Dafont. It's called Small Kitchen. 

Cardstock that I used are Old Olive, Black and White. The Gingham paper I had in my stash.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my latest card. Thanks again for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!
