SC330...Happy Birthday

Good Thursday Morning Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made with this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I used the pretty set from Stampin' Up called Happiness Shared. I love this flower blossom, I think it is a wild rose, alot of those are single layer and when fully bloomed look like this and the buds on this look like rose buds to me. I have used this set alot and have always used a light pink and made a soft flower and card. Well I decided to go bold with this one and I pulled out my poppy parade ink pad and aqua painter and went to work on coloring this one. I like the pretty red rose. I used some pear pizzazz ink on the leaves and soft sued on the stem. I then used some crumb cake to shade around the flower and give it an aged feel. I added a few dots with my chocolate chip marker and then splattered it a bit with some watered down soft suede ink.

The base of the card is crumb cake and then I used some poppy parade card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. The gingham paper is from the retired Sweet Slumber Specialty paper pack. I mated the main image with poppy parade and crumb cake card stock. I added three antique brads and pear pizzazz seam binding ribbon. The sentiment is from he Something to Celebrate hostess stamp set and I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up!

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

What a beauty, Vicki! I really love everything about it - the colors are wonderful and I'm a sucker for gingham so you had me immediately on this one! Love the metal too.
