Happy Birthday

Hi there-

My favorite card for a gal's birthday is of course a flower card. Fun coloring for me and flowers for the recipient. Win Win right?

This fall I got a new bouquet stamp that fits perfectly for fall and winter birthdays. The stamp was a Simon Says Stamp exclusive collaboration with Studio Katia.

This was my first use of the stamp. Embossed in platinum and colored with Arteza markers.

This is my second try. Again embossed this time in gold, colored with zig markers and over sprayed with gold glitter. In the light it sparkles beautifully, and I am sure my MIL will love it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

These are gorgeous. Your cards show the versatility of the stamp as I first thought you were showing two different stamps. Wonderful color choices.

I remember thinking that was one of the best sets of all the collaboration ones this year--love it! Your coloring is wonderful, Cat, & I'm super jealous of your MIM getting the pink with gold glitter card--haha! Happy New Year!
