Celebrate Your Day!

Here's another birthday card.  I'll be entering this one in the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Challenge AND the My Favorite Things Color Palette Challenge.

The stamps I used are from Papertrey Ink:  Fancy Flourishes and Signature Greetings.

I inked up my flourish stamp with Distress Inks: Peacock Feathers and Mowed Grass.  All of the papers I used are from Papertrey Ink: Classic Kraft, Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz, and Stampers Select White.  After stamping the sentiment, I felt like it got lost in the background so I stamped over it with VersaMark and then heat embossed it with clear powder to give it some dimension and shine.....now it really pops!  And the little butterflies were punched out with a Martha Stewart punch from the Raspberry Fizz paper.  I added a few little gems and D.O.N.E.


  1. I just LOVE this card! The colors are so bright and you did a super job on the inking with the distress inks. Pretty stamps, pretty design, pretty colors! Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

  2. Beautiful card, Amber! I love the dual coloured flourish. Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Happy Birthday!

  3. This is beautiful, Amber! Love how you combined two colors on that flourish. Great design!
