Happy Birthday

Good morning! A quick little post today to share a Birthday card that I am going to enter in Impression-Obsessions latest challenge: Party Time.


Here is a close-up, because you know I need to show you how pretty the perfect pearls and water mixture is when it catches the light or sun :)


I used one of my favorite techniques of colouring in an embossed image: using Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then spritzing it with a perfect pearls and water mixture :) The stamp is IO CC125 Sm. Quatrefoil, and the yellow stamped image is from IO stamp CC054 Swirls & Stars...I use this one all the time for all occasions! I think this is also one of my favorite colour combos....pink, yellow and orange. The sentiment is a sticker from SRM.

Have a fantastic day! Hugs, TRace

Your card is outstanding, as always, Trace! I love the colors and that technique with the Quatrefoil is just gorgeous! Perfect the way you did it with the Swirls & Stars too! Thanks so much for playing and good luck in the drawing too!

This card is outrageously COOL, TRace! The perfect pearls really add such a nice sparkly effect to an already cool card! Love the colors (I can see why this is a favorite combo for you)...and the layout is great, too. Awesome card all around!

Now I'm mentally going thru my CAC stash and wondering if I can make a patterned paper like your quatrefoil, LOL.
