Happy Birthday Rachel

Over the weekend we celebrated Rachel Tessman’s 50th birthday and I made this card for her.  I have a woefully small selection of current “Happy Birthday” sentiments that fit in this banner.  For the flower, I used a sponge dauber to apply the ink and my Stamparatus to stamp it twice.

A Little Wild about Sprinkles of Life with Thoughtful Banners

It’s my husbands birthday today, we are the same age for the next month and a half.  He collects elephants so I thought the A Little Wild stamp set would work well for him.  I lightly colored the elephant with the watercolor pencils and blender pen.
