Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Celebrate Your Day!


I needed to make a birthday card and decided to join in with this fun sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches .  Then I stopped by over at Addicted to Stamps and More where I was happy to see it was time for their Anything Goes Challenge! Since my SU leaves seem to have a permanent place on my desk, I decided to make one more card with them.  Well, maybe this will be the last one, but I think that is very unlikely. LOL  This time I decide to also use the SU leaf stamp that goes with this die for my background as well. I sponged some Oxide inks on some wet water colored paper using a tissue, I love the texture that the watercolor paper and the tissue make together.  Then I used my glossy accents and some glitter to give my leaves some added sparkle, since it is a Birthday card, and who doesn’t like sparkle. I heat embossed my Verve sentiment too. This card was a lot of fun to put together!

Below is a close up of my sparkly leaves.

Thanks for having a look, and I hope you are having a wonderful day! Nanc’
