Oh So Lovely Birthday Card

I can now post the birthday card I made for my sister-in-law, Wendy! We celebrated her birthday and my father-in-law's birthday yesterday as a family (their birthdays are August 11 and 13, but different family members have all been on holidays until this week!). So now that she's seen the card, I can publish it!

I used Beate's sketch from a few weeks ago to make this card. Its base is Soft Sky textured CS, layered with Wintergreen designer paper and Sage Shadow CS. I edged these two pieces with Sage Shadow ink. For the main image, I stamped the flowers from the Oh So Lovely hostess set in Basic Black on Whisper White CS, then coloured them in with blender pens using Purely Pomegranate and Sage Shadow ink. The greeting is from Sincere Salutations, stamped in Pomegranate. This piece was then matted on Pomegranate as well.

And as luck would have it, this will qualify for Barb's Bingo Color Challenge, since I used In Color colours! So we'll get an extra number drawn on Monday! By the way, today is Barb's birthday, so Happy Birthday, Barb! Enjoy your special day! If you get a chance, drop by her blog and leave her a happy birthday wish.
