Wish Big!

I made this card, to send to Darnell, to wish her a great Birthday! Yes, I was late to the party, but even later because she had to get it before posting...  So this was made with MUSE #173, Anita Bowden's beautiful card in mind (I'll post it below even though I totally missed the deadline).  The inspiration is obvious, but here's mine...


So I sponged the background, stamped the flower off-edge, clear heat embossed, splattered some water, added the sentiment, matted it and stamped the flower again, without color behind the sentiment inside.  A close-up (I was really hoping you'd see the shine from the embossing but alas I don't think you can)...


Supplies:
   Stamps - Stampendous "Fresh Bloom", PTI Birthday: Stylish Sentiments
   Ink - R Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade
  Other - Ranger clear embossing

So here's Anita's inspiration:



Thanks for stopping by, and hope your week is an awesome one!  I have another busy one preparing for Royal Family Kids' Camp (only 3 more weeks), my mother-in-law is in town, and I have my 4 year old grandson!  Life is awesome, but busy!
