Blushing Birthday




The Color Throwdown Challenge has an AWESOME color combo this week, thanks to this week's hostess, Barbara! It was perfect to use some DP from BasicGrey's Capella pad! This fabulous flower stamp is from Verve and is so fun to highlight with a Clear Star Sakura pen. The leaves were die cut with a Sizzix die then sponged with Rich Cocoa ink. Some Nestie dies, chocolate pearls and a Bow Easy bow complete the card. Will probably use this for my mom's birthday coming up in July. So glad you took time to look and comment...

STAMPS: Verve's 'One Person' (flower), Verve's 'Big Wish' (sentiment)
PAPER: Capella DP (BasicGrey), Chocolate Chip, Mellow Moss
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa, Mellow Moss, Blush Blossom
ACCESSORIES: CB, Sizzix leaves die, Kaiser chocolate pearls, Ivory satin ribbon, MS large scallop border punch, Sakura Clear Star gellyroll pen, Labels Ten Nesties, Oval Nesties, Sponge
