Upsy Daisy Birthday Card

I played along again this week with Stamping411. I had a small amount of time yesterday before we went away for the rest of the weekend. I am really happy with how my card turned out.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my interpretation:

When I saw the middle section for the image I thought of the stamp set Upsy Daisy. I was pretty sure the large floral image would fit perfectly. So I inked up the stamp set with my Old Olive & Melon Mambo markers. I decided to emboss the White background layer with my Big Shot & Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to add a little pop. I added a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Ice Cream Parlor pack. This pack includes paper and quick accents. The best part is that you can get it for free with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration through March 31st. Then I finished off the card with a faux bow. You criss cross the ribbon and then add the button to the middle and tie tightly to create the bow.

My aunt has a big birthday coming up later this month so I will mostly give her this pretty card for her birthday. The colors are bright and fun and I know she will love them. It has me dreaming of spring & summer after this long winter.

Ink: Melon Mambo & Old Olive markers
Paper: Ice Cream Parlor DSP, Whisper White & Melon Mambo cardstock
