Birthday Greetings

Good morning Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and found some time to get creative in your craft room. This week DRS Designs is proud to be sponsoring the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. It's a color challenge. Here's the cupcake photo.

I don't know about you, but whenever I see these inspiration photos from the Cupcake Challenges, I want to go to our local Cake in a Cup Shop and purchase some of their delicious cupcakes!! I shall try to resist!

Anyway, here is my card.

I started with white CS, stamped the medium daisies with VersaMark ink, embossed them with white EP and then sponged TH Scattered Straw ink all over the CS. Next I used a small paint brush and water to remove the Scattered Straw ink from inside the petals and added  Spun Sugar ink to the petals. I didn't have the right shade of green distress ink for the centers of the flowers so I used some dew drops. The greeting was stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink, die cut and layered on a green banner.

I hope you can join in the fun challenges at DRS Designs and CupCake Inspirations this week. You have 2 ways to try and win some great new stamps!

Thanks for stopping by,
