Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

A dinky little card today -

For the background, I stamped the Justrite Lacy Oval Frame Background onto Mauve Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pink Speckle Embossing Powder.

I stamped the Earthenware Vase twice using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac Embossing Powder.

I stamped the single lily from the Lily Spray Stamp Set three times using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured just the heads in using Shaded Lilac and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Markers and then cut them out. I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Earthenware Vase using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I cut it out using a Justrite Vintage Labels 4 die and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Pastel Lilac PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

    Late for work so in a rush, the weekend lie-ins are a hard habit to throw off!

  28. Hi Julia,
    What a lovely card! Great idea to use the urns like that! The whole picture reminded me of an Italian courtyard type garden! Could almost feel the sun!
    Love the colours too.
    Thanks again,
    Love Myra

  29. Julia have liked the vases and scent bottles on recent cards and the way the products you have used have made them look "glassy".
