a lovely birthday card


As promised yesterday, here is the birthday card I made for Theresa to send to a friend.

I used my Lawn Fawn stamps (which I love and highly recommend!!), and the Pink Paislee paper from House of 3 that is all about how you ink and/or mist it.

I used Tea Dye distressing ink on the paper this time. As much as I love the purple I used last time, it was time to try another color.


And more Copics learning time for me. Still getting the hang of it, but I truly do believe that with each attempt I get a better sense of how those markers work with each other. It really is all about trial and error with them.

Thanks for stopping by today! I am getting into card mode, so I hope you are ready for it!! I promise, layouts will not go by the wayside, I'm just really feeling some card creativity right now. Must be the holiday season!! :)
