Birthday card ....

... it's been a while - again!! There's so much going on here with the garage conversion that I'm not finding much time to get into my craft room.  However, I did grab a couple of hours last weekend when Kat asked me to make a birthday card for her friend, Melly.  Melly turned 18 years old a couple of days after Kat and she had her party on Saturday night.  Here's the card I made:

Stamps: Visible Image - Random Art of Kindness; Kindred Stamps - Nevertheless She Persisted; MFT - Bitty Birthday Wishes
Inks: Distress - Blueprint Sketch, Hickory Smoke; Gina K - Black Onyx; Memento - Summer Sky, Danube Blue
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Nuvo Aquashimmer Brush; Dina Wakley Stencil - Shape Mashup

I'm submitting this card to Colour Throwdown Challenge - CTD#562 and also to Seize the Birthday - STB#175.  This card is based on one I made last year when I was on the Uniko design team. I stamped the flower and stem images, masked them off and then stencilled a geometric pattern using grey, pale blue and bright blue.  I finished the card by adding sparkle to the flower with a clear shimmer brush.  The inside is very simple - a little feminist logo which works perfectly for both Kat and Melly.

Sadly you can't really see the sparkle on the flower - but it was so pretty in real-life!

That's all for now.  I'm off to go shopping for bits for mum's new flat!!
