Flower Power

Here is out lovely photo inspiration for this weeks challenge at The House that Stamps Built.:
No automatic alt text available.
 
 
 
I went with the floral and soft colors for my inspiration and below is what I came up with using Flower Power Background (10201) and Happy Birthday (8606-E).  I stamped my image in VersaMark ink and embossed in white embossing powder.  I covered with distress inks, wiped excess of with a Kleenex and embellished with gems and Happy Birthday on vellum.  I made several to have on hand for upcoming birthdays as I really liked the design.

Very pretty card. I love the background in the soft pinks and blues. That's a good design to make multiples of to keep on hand. Great job.

Donna this card is absolutely gorgeous! I love all the colors and the beautiful white stamping! You had linked this up in our Funday Friday challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack this week but unfortunately, I had to remove it because this is considered a back link. Your post is dated before our challenge even started, therefore unfortunately, it is not able to be accepted. I do hope that you will create another beautiful project this week before Friday gets here that you can link up with us. Your work is beautiful, I would love to see more of it!! Just remember when linking up to our challenge and most challenges, your blog post must be dated between the dates of the challenges start and end dates. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Jo
