Happy Birthday to You 26

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 13, 2017 @ 10:07 AM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the theme is Celebrating 2009 the Past, Present and Future of several of the stamp sets released in that year. I made a birthday card for my dear sister Tina featuring the Damask Design stamp set from 2009. I stamped then heat embossed the background using one of the damask design stamps to create the white on white background.
For the focal point, I stamped an orange peony using the stamp from Pretty Peonies:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with Freshly Made Sketches:
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with Color Throwdown:
I also have a 12" x 12" oil painting to share featuring Pansies in a Tin Can inspired by Daniel Edmondson:

I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
