This card is really fairly simple and quick to make. Take your card base measuring 4.25 by 11 and fold in half. Cut a rectangular piece of pattered paper measuring 4 by 5.25 adhere to the top. Punch a circle in the card front holding your punch at the top of the card making sure it is centered. Stamp flowers from Everyday events in noir black and color with watercolor pencils using the Dove blender. Cut a strip of white 5.25 by 1 and stamp warm wishes in noir palette ink.

Birthday card look close for the sparkle

This Birthday card show cases the simply divine set and the squiggle lady bugs set once again. I used chalk ink and traced over some inked areas with the stardust clear Gelly pen. I love that pen! I used the scallop edge on my marvy 12 inch cutter for the purple cardstock. Scallops have been around for a long time but they seem to be really hot right now. I think its a great way to keep a card simple with out being boring.
