Best Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone,
Thank you so much for visiting with me today. I have another birthday card to share with you today. I promise I’m going to be sharing a wider variety of cards soon. I just need a LOT of birthday cards! Like Monday's card, this one focuses on the sentiment. I added a bit of texture to the Fine Linen (PTI) card stock with the Swiss Dots embossing folder; but other than that, really tried to keep the sentiment the star of the card. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp “Best Hugs” set. I love this set because there are so many things you can do with it and such a variety of sentiments you can put together.

I took two photos so that you could maybe see the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen I added to the “Best” on the card. I love my WoS pen; but dang it’s hard to see in a photograph! After I stamped the sentiment, I added a row of small hearts in Teeny Bikini ink (SSS) and then added some glossy accents to each one for a little shine.  I wasn’t sure about this color combination: Enchanted Evening, Fine Linen, Berry Sorbet, Teal and Sweet Blush (all from PTI) but once I got them all together and finished the card, I have to admit they actually work pretty well together.

That is all for me today. Have a great day and I’ll see you on Friday!
