Birthday for a Young Scientist


Hello!  Today's card was made for my great nephew who turns 8 today and is very interested in science and doing experiments. On white CS, I printed and colored a digital image that I found online for his card and added die cut words and lots of punched out dots for bubbles.  Also added some Glossy Accents to the test tubes and flasks. Used GKD Blue Raspberry CS for words and card base and Cheery Lynn Dies. 

  Finished the inside with printed message and more images.

Vintage Roses

Taking time out to create a vintage style card using Gina K Designs Rose Bouquet stamp. Stamped the image with Memento Toffee Crunch ink on Ivory GKD Cardstock and colored with Copics.  Cut the image with an oval die and distressed the edges with DOI Antique Linen and stamped GKD sentiment with same DOI.  Attached this and an antique pink satin ribbon to a Ivory Paper Doily(from stash) that I wrapped around the Dark Sage Card Base.  I think the doily, colors, and ribbon are suitable for a vintage card.
