Delicate Birthday in Purples

Hi everyone, thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you are all having a great day.

Today's card was made by request for my Mother-in-law, who has been a wonderful source of encouragement in my card making journey. Her support and that of my friends and family is something that I can't express enough gratitude for.

For the flower, I took a couple colours of distress markers and coloured directly on the stamp, then I stamped it down, shifted the image and stamped it again. I sponged the background using a very light hand with antique linen. The greeting was gold embossed and die cut then raised up with foam tape. I added 1/4" satin ribbon and 6mm orchid sequins as accents. The matte is a deep purple to complement the other shades within the card.

This card is for the Time Out Challenge #47. I only recently stumbled across this challenge while looking at some of the beautiful cards posted in an MFT challenge. The artists behind these cards are so incredibly talented and I feel so honoured to have my cards featured next to theirs.

Thank you again for stopping by, I hope you all have a wonderfully crafty day.


  1. This is fabulous. I really like the dreamy look this sliding technique gives to the flower. I haven't tried this but will give it a go. We are pleased you found our challenge and joined in. We hope to see you again at TO

  2. Oh, this is lovely, Trina ... such a wonderful delicate bloom ... love the effect of the generational stamping ... so soft and feminine! So happy you found us at Time Out ... thanks so much for playing along ... hope you'll play with us again! Anita :)
