Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #163

Hi there! I was so excited about being asked to be April's guest designer for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge!!! I have fallen in love with these beautiful designed stamps and it is such a honor to be among such talented designers.

Today's challenge is hosted by Beate and the challenge to to make a birthday card. How easy is that? Always need birthday cards, right?



For my first card I used" Flourishes "He is Risen" and the sentiment is from 'Kid's Play". I cut out a oval from Spellbinders and sponged it with SU .
I used a Memento black marker and applying it only to the part of the image I wanted to stamp, using the huffing technique I stamped right on the oval. The card base is Spellbinders lattice frame.




Using the same stamp set I used the single Lily image, colored with Copic's and cut them out. The card base is Grand Nestabilities and scored in half. Using a smaller die I cut out a piece of DP. The background foliage is from Flourishes stamp set "Spring Ephemerals" and the sentiment is again from "Kids Play".


For more inspiration check out the rest of the teams gorgeous creations.
