Blue & White Birthday

It seems like forever since I've been able to keep up with making cards and blogging.  Sometimes life just gets in the way and puts everything else on the back burner.  But, I'm happy to say, the week is ending well and it is a most welcomed change.

What was really great, was to be back in the craft studio playing with some new things from the Holiday Catalog.  Instead of using a circle like on the card, I stamped an image from the Paisley & Posies stamp set in Distress Embossing Ink and added some of my favorite Copper Embossing Powder.  Then, I overlapped the die-cuts and stamped the sentiment on it.  The die I used is one from the Paisley Framelits Dies.  Both the Paisley & Posies stamp set and the Paisley Framelits Dies are from the new Holiday Catalog that you'll be able to order from beginning September 1st.

Stamp Sets:  Paisleys & Posies, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Inks:  Distress Embossing Ink (Tim Holtz), Vintage Photo (Tim Holtz), Night of Navy; Cardstock:  Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, Whisper White; Other:  Copper Embossing Powder, Night of Navy Baker's Twine, Cream Pearls

The sketch I used is from the Sunday Stamps Challenge.  For all the challenge details, click the image below.
