Happy Birthday



Today's card was created for the latest The Card Concept Challenge. I absolutely love everything about this gorgeous inspiration photo and wanted to create a card using as many of the elements as I could in the photo. To create my card I started by stamping a piece of kraft cardstock using a Heidi Swapp woodgrain background stamp and ColorBox chalk ink in charcoal. I dried the cardstock with my heat tool and then went over the paper with more Colorbox charcoal ink in unicorn to give it a nice whitewashed look. I set that aside and then stamped several of the floral images from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock. I colored the flowers to match the photo using my alcohol markers. I then stamped the sentiment from the Winnie & Walter The Big,the  Bold, and the Happy stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink for a nice crisp look. I die cut the panel using a Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangle die and popped it up off of the card using some 3M foam tape. I hope you like my card and I thank you for visiting my blog!
