It's week 3 over at Seize the Birthday, and here is the great sketch we have, to use when creating a feminine birthday card:

Sunny Challenges & Creations is also back, with a new year of challenges, so I'm entering this in the first challenge for 2013 - to make a birthday card.

I had to make a card for a lovely friend of mine who recently celebrated a milestone birthday.  The card is a bit late, but hopefully she'll still love it!

I have inked up my new Stippled Blossoms stamp set for the first time, and love it even more now that it has seen ink!  I used Tangerine Tango ink (stamped off once on scrap paper first) for the bold rose images, and overstamped the stippled patterns in full-strength Tangerine Tango ink.

Stamps: Stippled Blossoms, Memorable Moments, For My Family
Card: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
DSP: Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Crumb Cake stampin' pads
Other: Chevron embossing folder, Labels Collection framelits die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Old Olive button, White baker's twine, Tangerine Tango 1/4" ribbon (Sycamore Street - SAB), sponge dauber, stampin' dimensionals, glue dots, banner die (not SU!)
