Birthday Greetings …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Whew … the weekend has officially begun!! I heard it was going to be about 52° today … heat wave for this time of year in Wisconsin (I’ll bet you there will be people golfing and wearing shorts!!) lol

As promised, I have my updated card from our Throwback Thursday card … here’s the TBT


and here is my “newest model” …


I’ve changed out the designer papers of course so I’ll start there. I used the It’s My Party Designer Paper, so many fun patterns for birthdays and I liked that this one could be used with anything … including my flower!

The beautiful flower comes from the “Helping Me Grow” stamp set, I’ve used this many times and just love the flowers! Pushing “spring”!!

Instead of using the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique on my flower, I went simple for my sparkle and just painted on the “Wink of Stella”.  I blended the ink with my “Wink of Stella” pen to create more sparkle without loosing the depth of the layering of color on my flower.


I love my rhinestones but I replaced them on this card with the “It’s My Party” Enamel Dots. I thought they worked so nice with the designer paper … they are in the same “party” suite.

And lastly …. my greeting, which comes from the “Sunburst Sayings” stamp set. It just fit in the space so nicely!! Amazing what a little transformation can do to a card!


Thanks for coming over and checking out today’s post … much appreciated!

Have a warm and wonderful weekend!
