Birthday Wishes

Happy New Year!

Crafting resolutions for 2016:  to post more often and join a variety of challenges. 
At least the number of my 2015 posts more than doubled the previous year. Unlike many of the bloggers that I follow, my blog was created mainly for online classes and challenge entries. I enjoy the interactions we make on blog hops.

I'm busy making birthday and get well cards after months of Christmas cards. Today's card combined watercolor smooshing, stamping and embossing on vellum.  

Card Recipe:
Stamp: Papertrey Ink Swoosh
Die: PTI Modern Cross Quilt cover plate
Inks: Ranger Distress mowed lawn & peacock feathers, Momento New Sprout,      Versa Mark
Extras: silver embossing powder, PTI striped vellum, watercolor paper, silver card stock

Colors were inspired by the colour Q #324 challenge

Also entering this in the Just Us Girls Trend Week #325 Metallic
