Happy Birthday Gracie!

A beautiful day today.  Started off with a little tennis, while I made it to the playoffs, I lost the match! Oh well, least I made it this far!  Thanks husband for your coaching and support!


I always love particating in the Your Next Stamp Color Challenge, and this one is no exception. Here are the colors for the current challenge #27.

I needed a card for my long time friend Grace who has a birthday coming up. She loves dogs, so this one is perfect for her!  I focused on 3 colors:  green, light brown and white.

Let me know what you think...

This is a clean and simple design.  I started by stamping the image on white card stock, heat embossing the image, then coloring with Copic makers.

I stamped the sentiment and used my wavey border to cut the cardstock.  I used the paw print stamps to stamp on the green panel.  I heat embossed the paw's with clear embossing powder to get a nice tone-on-tone look.

I popped up the while panel with some foam tape and that finished up the card!
