Birthday Card ~ Pink Bells {2nd Post}

It's that time again.
If you LOVE your Verve goodies and I DO then the 
is going to make your day. It did mine.
It was just the thing to get my crafty mojo up and running today.
I played with the Framed Florals stamp set 
from Julee's August release to create my card.
I know they are supposed to be bluebells but sometimes
I like to play outside the box so I colored them up with a pink Copic.



*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Floral frame and sentiment from the Framed Florals stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Banner cut using the Flag It Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder from Provocraft.
*Ribbon from Offray.
*E13, R83 and YG06 markers from Copic.
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Memento.

May your day always be filled with love.

Birthday Card ~ Sweetie Bee {1st Post}

I combined this cute bee with the sweet cupcake 
using the masking technique where they overlapped.
Next I colored them up then brushed on some sparkly glitter.
I overlapped three scalloped heart borders then
used the negative cut hearts for decoration.
To finish up I added the sentiment on a die cut heart.
