Blooming Wishes

Monday again already...hope your week is off to a good start!  This Thursday I'm leaving to spend 2 weeks in Texas for my birthday, so I'm excited :)  But first I've got a birthday card to share:


I admit, if I get a bunch of stamp sets at the same time, sometimes it takes me a long time before I actually use all of them.  I got Blooming with Kindness when SU! had that one-day 20% off all stamp sets sale last October and just got around to inking it up.  I knew its time had come when I saw the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:

This card will be going to a friend of mine who loves the color red.  While I love color in general, my personal favorites are definitely on the cool end of the spectrum--green, blue, purple.  But I have fun with all kinds of colors so Katie gets her pink and red card :)  My mom doesn't like pink and red together but I think this kinda works!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies (all SU!):
Stamps:  Blooming with Kindness, Parlor Prints
Ink:  Real Red, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
Paper:  Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Neutrals DSP Stack
Accessories:  Brights Glimmer Brads, corner rounder punch
