Papertrey Ink Birthday Card

Blog-hop-logo


Hello everyone,

Today is the day for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time we were given a lovely photo with lots of yellow and aqua colours to inspire us

Blog inspiration

I had my new Bitty Bouquet stamps waiting to be inked up for the first time and I thought that this would be the perfect first run for them. I needed a birthday card for one of my oldest friends who has a birthday coming up and she loves flowers, so this was a match made in heaven.





I stamped the flowers on white card, cut them out with a circle punch and the central flower was coated with Wink of Stella, which gives a pleasing sparkle IRL but doesn't show up on the photo. The other stamps were from Birthday Classics: April and Boutique Borders: Father. My Misti (love that thing!) came in really useful with this card because the lemon tart ink was really pale and I was able to restamp beautifully until I achieved the shade I wanted.


I'd like to enter this into

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.

  23. Between the colors and your design, this is the perfect card for a spring birthday, Carol! So you are another friend who loves the Misti, eh?! So far, I have not run into one single person who doesn't like it, so I guess I'd better get in line! Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4, my friend!!
