Surprise Wendy, happy birthday!
I took this opportunity to whip out one of my Penny Black brushstroke flowers. It's been quite a while since I have used any of them. I also used my Stampin' Up markers. That is such a rare occurrence that my 13 year old daughter saw me using them and asked why I was using them. LOL The third thing I used that has been collecting dust for a couple years is my air art tool that sprays ink. I wanted to dirty up my pristine pink flowers and that was just the ticket. I was feeling quite accomplished using so many things that have been ignored for so long. LOL
The "new" aspect to my card is the crystal swirly thingy. For the LONGEST time I didn't like them. They have been growing on me for the past couple months and then the other day it was an all-out obsession to get some. Hubby took me shopping and I got a nice supply of them. Since they are on my desk (in mass quantity) I decided to slap one on here. It added a little pizazz... so much so that I didn't even use any brads. (check out my corners, Michele) I also used some pretty new tiny rose ribbon I bought at Pizazz in El Paso. Love it. It's so cute!
I stamped the sentiment in Brilliance black and embossed in clear to emphasize the sentiment.
It's time for me to send you along to the next birthday hopper. Up next is Regan D'Agostino. Hop along and I"ll see you soon with day of MFT Teaser Time. :)
