Happiest Birthday

Today is my friend's birthday and she just happens to be my local SU Demo, Chris Galbraith.  I enjoy getting to make a card for her now and then, especially given all of the creative inspiration she shares with me and the rest of her customers throughout the year.  The card was inspired by this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch #PPA149.

The image is stamped and then colored with SU markers.   I used a darker color first and then a lighter one for a blended effect. The strips of printed papers are mounted on the red and then embossed. 

Here's an angled shot to show off some of the dimension and texture

And the inside of the card.  I used markers to ink up the greeting stamp.   The flowers are stamped, colored and then cut out. Adhered with some pop dots. 

Here's the sketch that provided the inspiration. Pals Paper Arts sketch #PPA149.
