Delaram's birthday card


Today I'm popping in to share a quick card I recently made for my friend and co-worker, Delaram.  She just celebrated a milestone birthday so I wanted to make sure this card was everything she would love.  I know she loves green, gold and bling.  (lol)  So I tried to give her a bit of everything.  I think I nailed it.

I have been on this transparency paper obsession and love how I can stamp on it without detracting from the background.  I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a Staz-on gold or silver ink pad?  It would have come in handy to have one of those on hand for this card.  I tried with a pigment ink but it smeared, so that's why you see the black ink.

Here are the supplies I used:  Neenah white card, MS gold & white patterned paper, green & gold Glitzy paper, transparency paper, MFT Die-namics rolled rose, mini rolled roses, large hybrid heirloom rose, Taylored Expressions Party banner cutting plate & leafy branch, La-La Land Crafts Open leaf flourish, black Staz-on ink, gem brads.

I enjoyed making this card and now Delaram wants to learn how to make the roses!  Funny, she didn't believe me when I told her I made them.  I said well I guess I'll just have to show you huh?!  She's excited to learn and I think that is cool.  :)  Thinking that having a bunch of these cards will definitely come in handy.  Hmmm, something to think about.  Well that's all I have for today.  Thanks again for stopping by!  Have a terrific day!!
