Happy Birthday Wishes

What?!?!?  Ten days have passed since my last post?!?!?  Time sure flies, especially when there's a lot going on.  I'm so ready for Thanksgiving break.

Anyway, I was able to play in my planet after dinner.  I made a birthday card for DSIL, who is having her special day tomorrow.  It's also my first time to use La Blanche stamps... and for the Nth time in my crafty life, I fell in love.

I didn't do anything special with the stamping - just heat embossed it.  But for the background, I wanted to achieve the quilt effect.  So I actually had a thin sheet of foam under each piece of dp.

I also touched up the vellum with Copic markers to accentuate the image more, just around the edges of the underside..

Materials used:
cardstock/dp - Recollections, DCWV, vellum, leftovers
image/sentiment - La Blanche, Stampin' Up
ink:  Tsukineko, Ranger, Copic
tools:  Spellbinders, Janome Sew Mini
embellishments:  rhinestones, ribbon
misc.:  Ranger embossing powder
adhesive:  Scotch, Glue Dots, mounting tape

'Til next blog!
