2.8 Birthday Wishes

* Click here if you're looking for my Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers post, or simply keep scrolling down. :)

Hello there! I want to pop in real quick to share a card I made for my Mom's upcoming birthday. Ta-da!:

Here's the inside:

This card was assembled rather quickly, except for having to color the heart rhinestones to match. (Tip: To get all matchy-matchy, use your alcohol markers to color clear rhinestones.) I think that actually took the longest to do! I received happy mail today from Paper Smooches, so I used the new stamps and dies I got.

I got lucky and thought ahead to combine challenges. (It doesn't happen often with me.) The sketch is Dahlhouse Designs Wanna Sketch #12:

Colors are based on Colour Me #6 - Monochromatic using wisteria and white:

Since I used Paper Smooches stamps and dies, I'll also enter this in the soon to be not current Sparks Challenge - Anything Goes:

I love it when a plan comes together. Or rather, challenges. HA! Thanks for stopping by! Stay crafty my friends!

Stamps: Paper Smooches - Happy Birthday
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
CS: Darice (white); Bazzill (wisteria)
Accessories: Grand Calibur; Paper Smooches - Flowers dies; Recollections - rhinestones; Spectrum Noir HB3 marker
Adhesives: SA by 3L - MyStik permanent, 3D foam squares; Glue Dots
