Birthday Wish


I did it!  
My Moxie Fab Mission is complete :)  
Today's card is for the final Birthday Creations challenge, to make a Birthday Card.


This card was really fun to make.  After a week of balloons, I was ready to make something a bit more girly and feminine.  I heat embossed the background with white powder on vanilla cardstock, it's subtle, but really adds a nice touch.  I masked off my card base so my stamping would stay right where I wanted it.  This card design is based off of a sketch that Kristina Werner used in one of the Online Card Classes.  I'm trying to resist the current class so I'm looking back at some of the old classes for inspiration :)

I hope you've had fun joining me on my Moxie Fab Mission! 
Have a great weekend!

Stamps:  Borders & Backgrounds 1 & Strictly Sentiments 1 (Wplus9) Peaceful Wildflowers (MFT)
Ink:  Fresh Peach & Mint Julep Shadow Ink (HA) So Saffron, Soft Suede, Versamark (SU!)
Paper:  Very Vanilla (SU!)
Accessories: Circle Punch (SU!) White Embossing Powder, Wood Butterfly

Yay! So happy your card got picked - it is gorgeous.

Tammy Hershberger said...

Oh, finally I found this card! Had in saved on Pinterest, but the person I pinned it from had only linked to your blog, and not this specific post. I CASE'd your creation this week, and came to your blog to look for the card but you don't have a search feature or a list of categories to search by stamp company. :( A friend told me how to search for an image using Google, so I'm glad I found this post so I can give proper credit. Thanks for the great inspiration!
