Sweet Simple Birthday Cards

Welcome here. Hope you've had a great week, and are now sitting back and enjoying your weekend. I have a couple of Birthday cards to share with you. The first card was inspired by one I saw in Stamp It '07. I keep my old issues and pull them out once in a while, I find it interesting that what catches my eye now, didn't back when I first looked at it. It's like having a whole new magazine to enjoy.
Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"
I used the border stamp from CTMH's Happy Journey stamp set to stamp the background. I stamped the flowers with Versamark and Clear Embossed it. I then sponged ink over top, and wiped off the excess. Did you notice anything out of the ordinary for me?...I didn't use a single Spellbinder or Embossing Folder, lol. Going back to the basics was fun.
Recipe: CTMH CS-Pansy Purple, Cocoa & White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Pansy Purple, Garden Green, Black & Chocolate, CTMH SS-Sweet Flowers, Happy Journey, Live Inspired & Gracious Greeting, Dark Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, Versamark, Clear EP, Foam Squares.
This card started out being inspired by a card in Stamp It '07 as well, but the only thing left that resembles the original card is the light green cardstock:) In the photo below, you can see I added some sparkle...on the flower petals I used the Clear Spica Pen, and on the wisps I used Stickles.
Recipe: CTMH CS-White Daisy & Sweet Leaf, CTMH Ink-Black, Blush, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, Petal & Buttercup, CTMH SS-Smiles, Light Purple Textured CS, Purple Grosgrain Ribbon, Pearls, Foam Squares, Stickles, Impressabilities-Flower Silhouette.
Hope you enjoyed the cards, have a great weekend!
