Birthday Wishes

Hello!

Thought I'd share something pretty today.  I was invited over to play in my friend Shirley's amazing 'girl-cave' on Tuesday.  We created, laughed, ate, and created some more!  What fun :)  Shirley is an Amuse demonstrator, so we crafted with her new Amuse stamps and inks.  I needed a birthday card for a friend.

Cardstock, Stamps, and Inks are A*Muse
We centered a small panel onto the main panel, adhereing with removable adhesive.  First the light color, then the darker color, were sponged directly onto the stamp, using small finger daubers.  We stamped the flowers, then the sentiment, lifted the small panel off, and permanently adhered it to the darker mat, then adhered the panel to the card.  I used a few pearls and some Martha Stewart punched butterflies to embellish my card.

Hope you give this a try - you could add as many panels and as many images as you like!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!

Blessings,
Patti J.

We did have fun - even if we did "case" the cards - we put our special twist on them. We both posted our cards on the same day - FUN.
