Dynamic Duos....Birthday Wishes

Happy Sunday Peeps!!!

I took some time  out of my Sunday afternoon to make a card! Yea me!!!

I took a look at the challenge this week on the Dynamic Duos Blog and decided to try my hand with the the colors:

I love this new Stampin Up set called "Regarding Dahlias", so I pulled it out for this card.

I stamped the flower onto pear pizzazz card stock with Versmark and embossed using wome white embossing powder. I then used a couple of Copic Markers to color it. I really like how it turned out, altho I am not sure dahlias come in green.

The base of the card is Garden Green card stock and then a layer of white and then another piece of Pear Pizzaz. I embossed the "X's" across the bottom of the Pear Pizzazz with one of Needlepoint Border EF and added the Sentiment, which comes from the Four You stamp set.

I cut out the colored flower and added some dimensionals to the back before adding it to the base.
Clean and Simple!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Colored so beautifully....who cares if green or not is reality. Actually they can cast a greenish hue before bursting into yellow. This is perfecto!!!
