Joyful Birthday

Hi friends!  I'm back with another card I made with the recent Verve release.  This one uses the Joyful Blooms set and coordinating die.  I was in a bit of a mixed media mood, so I pulled out my Gelatos to play a little.


The confetti tag is stamped randomly with the flowers from Joyful Blooms and I lightly blended the centers with a silver Gelato, then accented with Stardust Stickles.  The popped up flowers are colored with a Tattered Rose distress marker, then accented with glass glitter and more stardust stickles.  I also edged the tag with a black gelato, then added some glass glitter around the edges.

The background is a Sizzix embossing folder, which I lightly colored over the embossing with a black Gelato and blended with my finger.  Love the look of this.  I finished off with a black and white polka dot bow and some black pearls to highlight some of the flourishes.

This is so pretty. The embossed design really stands out the way you've done it with the Gelato. I love that polka dot ribbon!
