Hi all!  Long time, no see ;)  I've just been busy with life and work, you know how it goes!  Anywho, here's a card I made using the previous Color Throwdown Challenge colors.  I inked up the MFT Garden Flourish BG stamp with a few Ranger Distress Inks, spritzed it lightly with water, then stamped it on shimmer card stock.  The sentiment is from an older MFT set.  The scallops were done using an element from the Blueprints 9 dies.

Masculine birthday

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using the MFTWSC262 sketch.  I watercolored the background with Blu Raspberry, Cornflower and Lavender Fields inks.  I staggered the thin strip of lines from the Desert Bouquet set then embossed them with gold EP.  I cut out some stars out of silver foil paper using my Stacking Stars dies .  The 'happy' die-namic was cut out of black licorice card stock 3 times then layered somewhat offset.  'Birthday' is from a retired MFT set.  The card base is steel blue card stock.

May all your birthday wishes come true

Hi all!  I hope 2016 is being good to everyone so far :D  I'm a New Year's baby, so I always start it off  right, I guess you could say!  This card is inspired by my talented crafty friend, Marcie Sharp and the card on her post HERE.   Because I was making this with the latest ColourQ challenge in mind, I went with soft teal-ish blues and embossed the leaves in gold EP.  The flowers and leaves are from the MFT Desert Bouquet set and the sentiment is from their BB Birthday Bears set.  The card measure 4.25 x 4.25.
