Something to Celebrate

 I need *many* cards for family birthdays- something to celebrate!  I enjoyed creating a floral card using a new stamp from Gina K Designs.


 I had fun a week ago at a Scrapbook retreat making backgrounds with Distress Oxide Inks.  I made this to put a floral image on- thinking specifically of this Gina K image. I colored with Copics and fussy cut out the image. I added some dimension by curling the leaves with a quilling pointy tool I have.  A couple of the blooms are up on dimensionals.
 The sentiment is stamped and black embossed. I also stamped a Happy Birthday on the inside. I just love using the Distress Oxide inks- they blend so beautifully!

What a gorgeous background. The more I see of the distress oxides the more I am drooling over them. I love the Gina K image too. That fun little trip netted you some new stamps? Awesome!
