Birthday Flowers

Therese's Inspiration Card
Almost out of time to enter the birthday challenge at Impression Obsession.  When I saw Therese's card for the Muse Challenge I was inspired to use her "coloring outside the lines" technique with my IO Five Roses stamp, J2441.  I used a water brush with 3 different Gelatos.  It's Your Birthday, A6977, is embossed, punched out & matted with a black punched circle.  I wrapped the panel with 3 rows
Greta's Card
of fibers I saved from the tags on some items I bought & then popped up the sentiment circle & the panel. Need to find more of the peachy-pink cardstock as it's a great match for the Gelato.  Also entering SSS Monday. Several snippets on this card, so I'm also entering at Pixies Snippets PlaygroundSo glad you took time to stop by. Wishing you a great week.
