New Challenge Happening!

I was excited to learn that Reverse Confetti has announced a new monthly challenge (in lieu of the former Sketch For You To Try).  They are calling it Stock Your Stash and this month's theme is "birthday".  I never have enough b-day cards stockpiled, so this will be a perfect theme!  Plus...it will be RC's 5th birthday this month!

I was cleaning up my desk area yesterday and discovered I have
quite a few pieces of watercolored backgrounds that were never suitable for cards as a BG, but they were perfect to white emboss these floral images!  My fave Stone CS base is a go to choice (next to white), so I die cut/embossed with RC's Stitched Rays Cover Panel which gives it a wee bit of texture and interest.  I popped the flowers with foam tape and adhered the leaves with glue.  A few glitter enamel dots from SU finished up the design.  I'm also entering this into the Seize the Birthday Challenge where anything goes this week.

STAMPS: Build a Bunch, Sentiment Essentials - Reverse Confetti.
PAPER: Stone (RC), White (PTI).
INK: Versafine Onyx Black (stamped 3 times with MISTI).
DIES: Stitched Rays Cover Panel, Scalloped Squares, Sentiment Essentials - all by Reverse Confetti.
