STB#1 - Happy Birthday

Hello again!!!!  Next card up is for the Seize The Birthday Challenge#1.  If you haven't heard of this challenge blog yet - it's pretty cool.  For the first week - you create a feminine card based on their sketch. The second week - you create a masculine card based on the same sketch.  I know I always need help with masculine cards - so I'm excited to have found this new challenge blog.

Here's my feminine card:

I recently got some Dylusions spray inks - so I wanted to try them out.  I embossed this Penny Black flower with white powder on watercolor paper.  Then I spritzed them with teal and blue inks.  It will take a bit to get use to the spray (and the blue fingers I went out to dinner with) - but I'm happy with the result!

I used a PTI sentiment that I bent to fit that layer and a PTI impression plate that I dotted with my white gel pen.

I added a few gems to the flower and dew drops to the right side!

OK - well - go check out this challenge blog if you haven't already!  Here's the sketch:

ONE more card to come!!!!!!!  See you again soon!

Thanks for your visit!
