Happy Birthday!

It's the Fall, which means there are lots of birthdays to celebrate around here!  Today's card is for a birthday yesterday, so I've been waiting to post it so there wouldn't be any spoilers! the hubby looks at my blog anyways.... 

*Drum roll*.... here it is! 

I went for a tone-on-tone look by stamping with peacock feathers distress ink on pool colored paper from Paper Source.  The background stamp is an Impression Obsession cover-a-card stamp that is aptly named "spatter."  I then used some teal washi tapes to add some stripes across the card.  Next, I used a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn set "Sophie's Sentiments" stamped in vintage photo distress ink.  I thought it would be fun to add some birthday balloons (Stamps by Judith), which were colored with copics and covered with Glass Effects Gel-- see how the balloons are shiny: 

I also thought it would be fun to add some baker's twine-- a card can't be complete without it, right? 

And there you have it!  Happy Birthday! 



  1. Who says that the hubby doesn't look at the blog!? I love this card just as much here as I did when I was given it by the amazing author of this wonderfully thoughtful blog!

  2. Very sweet--the card and the hubby's comments!

  3. Love this tone-on-tone card - great spatter background stamp.


Many thanks for each and every thoughtful comment! Your feedback is genuinely appreciated--I only hope you enjoy my cards as much as I enjoy your comments!
