And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Birthday Floral

Hello friends!  Just popped in to share a birthday card using the Splitcoaststampers Sketch for today and another of the fun, new Pretty Potted Florals designed by Nina Bracket from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.


Creative Nugget:  The background for this card was made by applying watered down distress inks with an acrylic block on some mixed media paper, some sponging through a crackle stencil, and then sprayed with some Gilded Gold Art Anthology spray…a bit messy, but a pretty layer for my Copic-colored Pretty Potted Floral.  The little Majestic Monarchs were stamped on scraps of the background paper, cut with the matching Monarch Die, and mounted on coordinating squares of card stock.  The sentiment from another new stamp set, Floral Greetings, was embossed on a pennant flag die cut.  Some white accents, a little bow, and a pearl of Nuvo Crystal Drops were added to finish the card.
These stamp sets from Sweet 'n Sassy were used to make this card:

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Favorite Tool (Copic Markers and the Big Shot Plus)
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 86 - Colors (Light Yellow, Peach, Teal)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day…even if it is not your birthday!

Hugs,
Cathymac
