Birthday wishes 25

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 1, 2015 @ 11:40 AM | , , , ,


Happy March! So did March come in like a lion where you live? Thankfully not here ~ we are enjoying 70 degree temps with partially blue sky. Makes for perfect hiking weather :) Today I have a couple of cards to share featuring beautiful beautiful patterned papers from the Pion Design Paris Flea Market collections. The first one up is a birthday card for my dear sister Tina:
 I embellished both cards with a trio of homemade die cut rolled roses, foliage, a stamped clock and sentiment:
 For a touch of shimmer, each rose was dusted with a sprinkling of glitter:
I cleaned the clock stamp but there was still stubborn black ink that remained on the stamp. When I stamped the image in the tan ink pad, the inks mixed. I kinda like the final result. Something different.
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current cardabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Beautiful cards Mona and I rather like the ink mixing on your stamp! Happy birthday to your sister and happy hiking to you! (March is acting very lamb like in B.C. too, still a little too much snow here for hiking but won't be long now!)
