Card Concept.......Happy Birthday


Happy Saturday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the inspiration/color challenge this week at The Card Concept


Beautiful, Bright and Fresh!

I had been itching  to color this beautiful rose from the Stampin Up Rose Wonder set and this was the perfect challenge to do so.

I stamped the image onto some white card stock with black stazon and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads. I used a combo of colors for my flower, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Real Red and some Whisper White ink. The leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi. I colored around the flower Soft Sky.


The sentiment piece is stamped and then die cut with the matching dies to the stamp set. I love the sentiments and fonts in this set.

I kept the card fairly simple, I layered the flower image onto some Calypso Coral card stock and then onto the base with dimensionals.
I wrapped a bit of twine around the top of the card before mounting to the base and then added the sentiment with more dimensionals.
I finished if up with a couple of gold pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Vicki

This is such a pretty card. That stamp set has so many possibilities! I love the coral matting- it sets your rose off perfectly.

So pretty and beautifully done! The colors are soft and lovely and I love the font in this set! I have had this set for awhile and still have not used it. I know, shame on me! Great job on this card, Vicki! :)
