Happy Day to You!

I LOVE the 2011-2013 in colors and I REALLY like this color combination! I found the color combination with my Color Coach but accidentally picked out Pool Party cardstock instead of Baja Breeze since the in colors are still fresh in my mind. This card is one of the very few cards I completely designed without CASEing anyone (Copy And Share Everything)!

Isn't that beautiful? I used my new Stripes embossing folder for the top portion. I just put part of the card in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. One detail that isn't very visible is that I heat embossed the flower by covering my stamp in Versamark, then Rich Razzleberry and stamped the image on the Whisper White cardstock. Then I sprinkled clear embossing powder and used the heat tool until the embossing powder changed color. Ok - here are the ingredients for his birthday card:

Stamps: Friendly Phrases, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink: Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, Whisper White
Accessories: 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (island indigo), Versamark, Clear Embossing Powder, Jewels (basic pearls), heat tool
