Tangerine Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your Christmas Break!  While you read this I am away visiting family and enjoying a break from routine!  You may remember that before I went away, I was working on a set of cards that I was giving my grandmother for Christmas.  This is one that I made for her - let's face it, you can never have too many Birthday Cards!!

I was inspired by a recent Mojo Sketch, although I made this after the week's cut off.  I started with a base of Tangerine Tango and layered with white and some Bloom and Grow DSP.  Across that I've added some striped Bloom and Grow that was matted with green bazzill punched both sides with the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch Border Punch.  The image is from SU's Bloomin' with Beauty (Bloomin' Beautiful in the US) and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke and Creamy Caramel.  I cut it out and popped it up on an embossed piece of white which is matted with Hazel Bazzill and more Tangerine Tango.  I finished off by adding the sentiment (Sincere Salutations - SU), Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the top corner and also to many of the flower centres.

Stamps - Bloomin' with Beauty (Bloomin' Beautiful), Sincere Salutation (SU)
Paper - Tangerine Tango, Pear and Hazel Bazzill, White, Bloom and Grow DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel
Accessories - Small, Large and Large Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Lattice Arch Border Punch, Swiss Dots EF, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Scissors and Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
