Happy Birthday to my Mother In-law


Today is my Mother-in-law's birthday. For this card, I stamped the Pick a Petal petal in Versamark and embossed in clear. I then sponged the Rose Bud ink over top of the embossing, making it darker near the flower's centre. I added a silver brad and mirror card for sparkle and a simple Papertrey sentiment, stamped in Night of Navy.

Hey, I see you, right?! In the brad? I feel like a detective on one of those crime-drama shows.

Love the sentiment in navy, especially paired with the pink. And the white embossing. Such a fan!!

This is so pretty, Ardyth! I like how you didn't mask the petals when you sponged them. The smudginess gives it such a soft look.

So pretty, Ardyth! Your spongeing is so beautiful! I made my first ever card using Pick a Petal, and I was HOOKED! I still wish I'd bought that set. ;-)
