Happy Birthday

Hi there! A couple of months ago I was the VERY lucky winner of TWO stamp sets from Practicing Creativity Designs!!! Today I used one of those sets, Nature's Wonder, to create this card:

I used Card Patterns Sketch #99, and I attempted to use the color combo from ColourQ Challenge #69. I used lavender ink (it's the only purple ink I own) and an amethyst V17 Copic Sketch Marker, but in the photo they look blue. Hmmm.

I was really happy with the way this turned out! I'm going to make more of these in different color combos---there's one combo in particular that I've already stamped out and LOVE, but I need to find a Copic marker that's the right match for it. Oh darn...more shopping! HA! I may even try adding a bit of distressing to give it a more rustic feel! Does that ever happen to you??? You finish a card and as you're preparing your post your mind continues to think of things you could have done differently?!?! Drives me crazy sometimes!

So...what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
