An Unbelievable Birthday

Happy Tuesday!

There are a lot of things to get done today...not that I want to do any of them...but what's a Mom/wife to do?  Do it, right?  

Before I get going on that long to do list, I wanted to share a cute card with you.  

This card was inspired by the MFT Color and Lawnscaping Challenges.


I created a card panel by blending Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks onto Canson watercolor paper.  Then I spritz with a distress sprayer to give a bit of texture.  

I used MFT's Pierced Rectangle Frames so that I could pop up the 'outside' of the panel.  

I stamped the sea creature onto the watercolor paper and used distress markers to paint him (or her).  

I wanted to tuck the creature into panel, so I stamped the waves (included in the stamp set) on the panel with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white powder.  Then I hand cut above the image and popped the lower portion on foam tape.  

The top panel was stamped with the stars from the set and clear heat embossed, then spritz with WPlus9 shimmer spray mist.  

To finish of the card, I added a few drops from my stash.
