Pinwheels & Popsicles Birthday Fun!

Today's card is the one I made to fit the 10-Minute Thursday Creation challenge over at Flourishes.  It's part of their birthday celebration.  I also wanted to use one of the new stamp sets I won for being chosen one of the winners from the It's Sketchy - July Release Challenge.  I used the Pinwheels and Popsicles stamp set for today's card.  Actually, I won the entire July release and I can't even tell you how happy and excited I was.  Up until that time, the only Flourishes stamp set I owned.  Now I'm using the new sets and learning to color with Copic Markers.  I'm so happy!

So, without further rambling, here is the card I made for the 10-Minute Birthday Challenge.  I've been wanting to make an easel card for some time now and this was the perfect time.  Party lanterns and lots of pretty colors make for a very cheerful birthday card.

Click HERE to check out the Flourishes blog for all the details about this challenge as well as all of the others during their birthday celebration.

Stamp Set:  Pinwheels & Popsicles (Flourishes); Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic Markers V12, V15, V17, YR02, YR07, YR09, B00, B02, B05, Y11,Y13, Y15; Accessories & Tools:  Top Note Die, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch (all Stampin' Up!), Rhinestones, Red & White Cloth Brads, dimensionals

This was a fun card to make.  I'm still learning how to color and blend with my Copic Markers.  I'll just have to keep practicing.

Until next time . . . happy creating!
