Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Birthday!


I hope you are all well and your week is going well!

I have made this card for Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog hop. I was so delighted to be asked to join in their first Anniversary celebration Blog Hop. The theme this week is Birthday/Celebration.  Thank you so much girls for this amazing privilege!

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. I have stamped her out with versafine onyx onto Waterford 300gsm water colour paper. The background and papers have been distressed with vintage photo. The sprinkly spronkly is stickle glue Star Dust. I have sprayed the paper, star buttons and mini hearts with glimmer mist iridescent gold. I have used Tim's distressing tool for my edges.

Thank you so much for looking!

Oh wow! Another magical card! I love the sparkle and the distressing (I cringe when I try to do this). Love the embossed hearts/swirls on the corners of your card. Each card you do is a masterpiece. It must take forever to create one card (or perhaps not for you) :o) hugs, Angela
