The card base is black textured card stock topped with a layer from SU's Ghostly Greetings DSP. On top of that is a layer from SU's Bella Rose DSP. The main image is stamped on white card stock with Black Craft Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used markers to color the wings and bows and added a little glitter glue for sparkle. The balloon is cut out and adhered with dimensionals. To achieve the vintage glow, I used Sahara Sand Ink, then Basic Gray, then Classic Black ink applied with a craft sponge. I matted the main image piece with black textured paper. The sentiment is from Verve's Feeling Groovy stamped on white, and matted with Ghostly Greetings DSP and Riding Hood Red cut with square Nestabilities. I added a black mini library clip, and a pink button from SU's Button Bouquet. I threaded the button with a super thin piece of black card stock and adhered with a glue dot. This is the first time I tried this technique. I love the effect.

The base of the card is black textured card stock. I embossed the bird and balloons on Shimmery White with Versa Mark ink and black embossing powder and then colored with Copics. I used Chrystal Effects to add shine and texture, and I used an unlabeled product in my stash that is a clear glaze with glitter on the bird. I used my round/scalloped Nestabilities to cut and mat the bird image in black and Old Olive. I used my Cuttlebug to emboss a layer of "Brocade Blue" which sits on a layer of "Orchid Opulence" (That paper pack was previously unopened for a long time). I used the Ticket Corner Punch on both layers and glued 2 purple rhinestones in each corner on the orchid. The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss Satin. The sentiment is stamped in black ink on white cardstock, cut with rectangle Nestabilities and matted on a black scalloped rectangle. I need lots of birthday cards this month, so I am on my way!

I made this for my friend Dee who is a bit over stressed these days - just like me, and probably you... Maybe I will make a bunch of these and send them to everyone I know... LOL. I love the colors I chose for this... Very calming, don't you think?
Hoping to post another card later... see you next time.
