Geranium Birthday

Today is the Featured Stamper challenge and this week the honour goes to Laurie aka HamiltonGal!!!  Laurie sent me a beautiful birthday card this week and I was thrilled to see her honoured today!  I was tempted to case the card she sent me, but instead I chose THIS card.  I kept the layout, pearls (although I moved them) and the idea of the flower with the sentiment beside it.  I really would have liked to put the sewing on, but most people who know me would realise that that is not a particularly good idea!!!  :)  I changed --- no sewing, different colours, image and sentiment.  I decided to make this a Birthday card so it would also qualify for this week's JustRite Stampers challenge JRC_005 to make a birthday card!!!  Come join us by using your JR stamps and you could win a $50 gift voucher to JustRite!!!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some deep pink bazzill and more Vanilla that was embossed with the Victoria EF.  Then I added three strips of My Mind's Eye Whirlybird DSP and attached a ribbon across them.  Over the top of the ribbon is a piece of Old Olive that was cut with the Label 5 Nesties and layered with a vanilla oval stamped on one end using JustRite's Just A Note set.  Next I took JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms set and stamped the Geraniums, coloured them with markers and carefully cut them out and popped them up on the oval.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the Label 5 die cut, a couple of Vintage die cut corners to the top and a big satin bow!

Stamps - Beautiful Blossoms, Just A Note (JustRite)
Paper - Deep Pink Bazzill, Very Vanilla, MME Whirlybird DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 5 and Large Oval Nestabilities, Vintage die set, 1" Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Markers, Blender Pen, Foam Tape.

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