Happy Birthday

 Happy Thursday Peeps!!!

Sorry for being MIA for a couple of days. 
Life gets busy, I spent some time with the grand babies and also cutting out a new quilt pattern that I have to get made before Mother's Day for a family member.

I have a hard time splitting my time between sewing and stamping. I tend to get caught up with just one and totally ignore the other. I am working on that.

anyway......on to my card
I made this card with a couple of challenges in mind. 

First up is my loose interpretation of this week's Freshly Made Sketches 

 I stamped the image from the stamp set All That You Are on thick whisper white card stock with black stazon and colored with my water brush and inks.

I colored very lightly with Calypso Coral and leaves are Pear Pizzazz.
I then fussy cut it out. I added an extra flower to my stem.

Can you see the bones of the sketch here? I hope so, I can. LOL!

The base of my card is Thick Whisper white and then I Embossed
 a piece of whisper white with the Basket Weave EF.
And a piece of DSP from the Gingham Gala to mat my Embossed piece.

I used one of the dies in he Wonderful Floral Framelit set and die cut with Vellum.
I added these to my card next to the flower and by the sentiment piece.

The sentiment comes from the same set and I stamped with Black Memento ink.
I added the floral image and sentiment to my card with dimensionals.

Thanks for coming by today.

So pretty, Vicki! I love the vellum leaves on this and your beautiful coloring! I was working on heat embossing on vellum yesterday then coloring it with the Blends. Still need to improve on that! LOL Love your Basket Weave layer as it makes for a lovely background! Great job! Happy Valentines Day, my friend!
