Happy Birthday

Last week I started out planning to make a card for the Impression Obsession challenge, which was to make a white card. Unfortunately, I ended up using a sentiment from Endless Creations, so this card didn't qualify for the challenge, but at least I achieved my primary goal, which was to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law.

The card base is from a DCWV Box of Cards, the card stock is from Stampin' Up and the inks I used were all Versamagic Chalk inks. The Wreaths and Garlands set I used is acrylic, so I was able to shape the main garland image in a circle on my acrylic block and then add the two toned flowers around it. The stamped panel was cut out using a Blossom Nestabilities die, then mounted to a scalloped circle. I added a Swiss Dot embossed panel in the center to tie my pink silk ribbon around, then mounted the stamped image on top of that and added the bow.

Hope you had a Happy Birthday, Melissa! Sorry this was late.

Enjoy your week - thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card, Robin. Love the way you curved the garland to fit the round shape. I forget to take advantage of the flexibility of acrylic stamps. Thanks for the inspiration!
