Happy Birthday To You!

Hi Stampers! 

Have you checked out this week's blog challenge yet?  It's all about BRADS and I've used 7 of them on this Birthday card! We all use them and I'm willing to bet you added them on your last creation. Run over to this post, check out all the details and link up a project today! You don't have to use DRS stamps to win, but if you do use them, you'll get an extra entry into the drawing. The prize this week is several awesome stamps for St. Patrick's Day! But, hurry--this challenge ends today at 6pm EST.

All stamps are from DRS Designs and this was created using the Birthday Flower Circle (377H).  The sentiment in the middle is part of the stamp. However, the wheels in my head are turning...if you used the unmounted or cling mounted version of this stamp, you could easily cut out the middle of the stamp and change the theme by stamping another sentiment in it's place.  You could consider the Tiny Belated Birthday sentiment (495A), the Gift For You Greeting (514B), the Enjoy Today Sentiment (1145C), the I love You Greeting (608B), or even the Tiny Happy Anniversary Greeting (340A).  The possibilities are endless!

For the background I stamped the Interlocking Flower Background (813H)The part I liked best is that there wasn't much to color--at least that's how I chose to proceed with the elements on this card.  I used Copic Markers to color in some of the flowers and then only part of the petals on others.  I used a white gel pen to color in the flower centers, the dots and some of the smaller flowers in the background. 
I hope you enjoyed seeing this card--It's one of my favorites! 

Have you heard? The Stamp-A-Versary contest begins soon over at DRS Designs! You have a chance to win a 20 stamp prize package from DRS Designs in honor of their 20th Anniversary!!!Stay tuned for more details

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

You're so smart to only color SOME of the flowers! I'll have to try that :) Love your colors and how they pop on the black!
