Each month just for fun on Splitcoaststampers the Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni have a challenge.  The challenge this month was to make a birthday card without using the word “birthday” and to incorporate actual numbers into the design.  I played along.  Here is my card for it.


This card is made with one of Flourishes newly released sets called “Summer Blossoms”.  I thought that some of the floral images in this set had a toile feel.  So using a couple of them I stamped a “toile-look” background.

blog93closeupsmall.jpgThe three main image panels also use images from this set.  The sentiment is from “Summer on the Patio”  which is another new set just released by Flourishes.  I added Sakura’s “Stardust” to the buds for the sparkle and some Kaiser rhinestones for some bling.  The scalloped edged ribbon is by May Arts.






Stamps: Flourishes “Summer Blossoms” and “Summer on the Patio”; Hero Arts “Friendship Letters & Numbers”

Papers: SU! Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Green Gable

Inks: Versafine “Onyx Black”

Accessories: May Arts Ribbon; Kaiser Rhinestones; Sakura “Stardust” Gel Pen; Silver Cording, Paper Piercer, Circle Punches, Word Window Punch


I haven’t been posting much lately, and this is why.


My sweet little granddaughters are here for just a few more days and I plan to spend as much time with them as possible.  So until next week…
