Blue Birthday Greetings

Hi there! I'm back this week with a super sparkly, mixed media birthday card.

Remember last week when I used a water color panel? This is the other water color panel I created, it came out with lots more blue/green/yellow colors. And the black panel? It was created MONTHS ago (#truth) using a Hero Arts stencil and some matte embossing paste which I colored black - just mixed the embossing paste with some black ink.

Trying to give you a peek at the shimmer. :D

I stamped and embossed the flowers from WPlus9 Kind Soul onto the water color panel and then trimmed by hand. It was a bit too big for my panel, so I cut it down and mounted a smaller portion at the bottom to kind of 'wrap around' the happy birthday sentiment. The happy was cut with a Heidi Swapp die, the 'birthday' was black embossed on a white strip of paper. I threaded the paper through the first 'p' and the 'y' of the word happy. Before cutting apart the flowers, I spritzed them heavily with some shimmer mist - lots of sparkle! Finished it off by flinging on some paint, some sequins and enamel dots (man, forgot how much I love those enamel dots).

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!
