Happy Birthday!

Hey everyone!  Today we have a new challenge over at Creative Card Crew.  This round the challenge is sponsored by Scrapping Center and our winner will receive a $15 gift voucher for their shop!

I have tons of Christian stamps and it's been awhile since I've used this one so I thought it was time to give it a workout :)  The Happy Birthday Sentiment is on the inside of this one.

I created the background by applying several light colors of distress ink to watercolor paper and then spritzing them with water to blend more.  The Spellbinders dies were cut from white cardstock and then I covered them in embossing powder - flicked the back to remove some of the powder and embossed, it came out with this cool antiqued look.  A few pearls and some ribbon and away we go!

Be sure to check out the Scrapping Center store for great products that you can use to join in the fun here with Creative Card Crew!  Also check out the blogs of my fellow DT members for some amazing inspiration.  To participate, just create a card that fits with our theme, pop it on your blog and link up at Creative Card Crew!

Can't wait to see your work!


  1. Oh, I love this! So pretty- a must have die to add to my list lol. I've tried that embossing technique before and it didn't come out anywhere near as pretty as yours did; I'll have to try it again. Love the distress ink/water background as well- definitely will have to give that a go too. Awesome card!
