A Birthday as Perfect as a Rose


Good Monday morning!  It's a dreary, rainy morning here - fitting for a Monday!

This is a birthday card that I made for my mother's recent 90th birthday.  I used a Thomas Kinkade stamp and coordinating sentiment.  The image is paired up with Graphic 45 paper (Tender Missives from the Le Romantique collection) and some gorgeous two-toned blue and copper ribbon.

The image was colored with a LOT of Copic markers and then aged using Distress Inks. Matching pale blue pearls were added to the scalloped borders.  For the inside, I used the same papers and a similar layout.

For you cat lovers, Repeat Impressions is offering an adorable kitty stamp for this week's Stamp of the Week, so be sure to head over to The House that Stamps Built to check out the details.

Come back Wednesday for another Belli Challenge!  Thanks for looking!
