Curtain Call.......Birthday Wishes




Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!!

Today's card share is made with the color challenge at Stacey's Stamping Stage The colors this week are rich razzleberry, Sahara sand, whisper white, basic gray and dusty durango.

I wasn't sure of how this card was going to come together when I first started, but I do like the end results. I started out by choosing my stamp set, Watercolor Trio. I inked up the flower stamp with rich razzleberry, dusty durango and I used a bit of old olive for the leaves. I stamped each color a few times without re-inking to get the various shades.

The only place you will find the basic gray on my card is on the sentiment. I stamped the "Birthday Wishes with my basic gray classic ink pad. I matted the main image with rich razzleberry and Sahara sand card stock. I then set this piece aside to work on the BG.

The base of my card is Sahara Sand card stock. I then added a layer of rich razzleberry and then a layer of whisper white with the new lattice embossing folder.
The bottom strip is made up of Sahara sand rich razzleberry and a piece of razzleberry DS paper from the Razzleberry lemonade paper pack. I did use a MS edge punch on the razzleberry layer and added a bunch of silver sticky back pearls.





Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!

Vicki
