Birthday Wishes

I’m still feeling creatively blocked so it’s really hard to create right now. I have two other backgrounds on my crafting table that will likely show up later but I had a hard time figuring out what to do for a background on this card. I still think it’s missing something.

I’m again playing with a sketch challenge and also a color challenge. #cts377 #fabfri192

Say Goodbye to Thankful Thoughts & Timeless Textures

This is the second time I’ve used Timeless Textures and I don’t think I’ve used Thankful Thoughts much either.  I’m horrible at actually sending thank you cards and I like clean lines so maybe that’s why neither got much use.  🙂

I colored the pearls with the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and you can’t really see it but the background is embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder.

A Whole Lot of Lovely Painted Harvest

I stamped the flower with Pool Party & Soft Sky.  The center is Soft Suede that I stamped on scratch paper first before stamping the flower center.  I cut the copper foil scalloped oval out of the layer, no one sees under the paper anyway.  🙂
