Stamping 411......Happy Birthday


Happy Sunday Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch challenge this week on the Stamping 411 Blog.



I pulled out my  neglected Stampin Up Mocha Morning Specialty Paper. this paper is so pretty and rich and has such a vintage feel to it. I love it and really that is why I haven't used it much. I just hate cutting into it.
I started this card with a base of Soft suede card stock and then I used a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed with the square lattice EF. I then used two patterns from the Morning Mocha, both matted with Soft Suede card stock.


The only change I made with the sketch was to put my bow at the top instead of the bottom of my card, as that worked best with my main image panel.
The flowers are from the Stampin Up "Elements of Style" stamp set. I stamped with timber brown stazon onto some Confetti Cream card stock. I then used my aqua painter and ink pads to color. I used Blushing Bride and Old Olive Ink. I then outlined a bit with Crumb Cake ink. The sentiment on here comes from the Create a Cupcake stamp set.
I added alot of basic pearls and the ribbon is Crumb Cake taffeta. 
Well, thanks for stopping by today and 
HAPPY STAMPING!!!

What a lot of beautiful details you've put on this card, Vicki. I love the look of the stamped image on Confetti Cream card. I never would've thought to pair Mocha Morning DSP with Elements of Style, but they work beautifully together.
