Two birthdays today.  First and most important is my DH’s birthday.  Here is the card I made for him.


The reflection was made using an acetate sheet.  The ship was stamped onto the acetate which was then flipped and the ink pressed onto the cardstock.  The moon was made by punching a 1-3/4″ circle out of masking paper.  That was then adhered to the cardstock and the sky was sponged using various inks.  The masking paper was then removed, and the resulting moon was lightly sponged.  The water was also sponged.


This card is playing along in the Addicted to CAS Challenge #57 – Code Word “Mask”

The other birthday is my blog! It’s seven years old today!  I’ve had a fun time this past week celebrating with some blog candy.  There is still one more Stampin Up set, “Lotus Blossom,” that’s up for grabs until tomorrow.  You can find it HERE.

And the WINNER for the SU “A Happy Thing” set is Carol L!!  Congrats!!   I’ll be contacting you for your snail address so that I can get it in the mail to you!

Happy Crafting!
