Birthday with Heart


Inside Card
Hello!  I have been MIA the last few days.....I have been visiting my Mother in TN and was away from making cards for a while.   I am trying to catch up with some challenges and have to hurry with this post to meet the deadline at Mod Squad.   This is a One Layer Card made with GKD Heart base CS because I can color with Copics and the ink does not bleed on the inside.  Used smooshing with distress inks to create background.  Inspired by the photo challenge at The House That Stamps Built. The blossoms are more pink in rea life....photo did not capture true colors. 

Supplies: Stamps from Flourishes Cherry Blossoms set, Sentiment from Repeat Impressions, Ink Memento Cocoa Brown, Distress Inks Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass, Copics, GKD White CS.

Mod Squad Challenge: One Layer Birthday. Used birthday sentiment inside.
The House That Stamps Built: WIW Photo Challenge M1816. See below.
Retro Rubber: Challenge #39 May Flowers.  Used Flourishes stamp set that I know was released in 2010 and I bought at that time. Repeat Impressions stamp is also over 1 year old.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

I'm so glad you shared this in our Retro Rubber Challenge, Theresa. Wow! Those blossoms are so beautifully inspired by the photo. Love your background. Gosh, six years ago... Even some of my Power Poppy stamps are already two years old. Have a good day!

Love the soft coloring for this one layer card. And I appreciate the advise on the cardstock that won't bleed with Copics... will have to try that out. I always love seeing your work in our gallery. Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber, Theresa!
