Happy Birthday using Winter Flowers

I'm back today with another card to join another day of Kathy's 30 day color challenge. All the details on her blog, The Daily Marker. Lots of fun. Also, joining again over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes this week.

It feels good to pull out a stamp set that has been sitting for a super long time and use it. This one is the Winter Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp and wanted to try another coloring medium.

After watching a video made by Yana coloring on a darker card stock, I wanted to give it a try. So I pulled out my Misti and stamped the images down onto colored cardstock using a light colored ink. 

Next, I colored in these beautiful flowers and leaves using my Polychromos pencils making it into a birthday card.

Afterwards, I put the card stock back into my Misti and embossed the image using white embossing powder. You can click here to watch Yana's video on how to do this technique. 

For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Messages stamp set, also from Simon Says Stamp as it has really cute font. Last but not least, added some 4mm Sparkling clear sequins and kept it clean and simple.
