Birthday Blues

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for my favorite sketch feature over at Mojo Monday... tall & skinny! I used the Be Blessed set from Verve's brand new release for my card.  If you haven't already, be sure to check out the Verve store to view the entire release.  And there's a FREE US Shipping promotion on orders over $30 that runs through tonight (5.26.14), so it's a perfect time to pick up a little Verve!

I started by stamping the solid small flower from Be Blessed in Marina Mist twice.  Next I stamped over one of the flowers with the medium solid flower in soft sky.  I cut this out with the coordinating Petal Points Die Set, then hand trimmed the very center of the extra flower I cut and popped it up over my flower center for a bit of dimension.  The leaves are made from white cardstock run through the die cut machine with the new Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  Then I stamped over each die cut with the coordinating stamp from Be Blessed in Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is stamped in Marina Mist and I matted it with a white circle accented with white liquid pearls.  My background is Marina Mist cardstock and I randomly stamped both solid and outline images of the flowers in the same color, then did the same for the soft sky horizontal panel.  I finished off with a few more liquid pearl accents and a seam binding bow.  The finished card size is 3.5 x 5.5".

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're having a fabulous long weekend!  Mark and I actually got to go to the movies yesterday for the first time since before Christmas.  Such a nice break from our teething toddlers.  A great way to recharge the batteries!
