Flourished Birthday

I spent a bunch of time today trying to slim down my stamping collection and pull things together to sell on ebay. You might have noticed that my blogging has been nonexistent, and that's because my stamping time has been nonexistent. I've been going through quite a creative slump, and I think it might be because I have too much stuff and get overwhelmed. So, while I was taking pictures of all the items to sell, I found this card that I have not yet shared sitting on my camera's memory card.

This was a quick and easy birthday card for a friend (though the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is tough to see here). It's pretty self-explanatory, though I wanted to mention that the flourish and the flower are traced with a clear spica glitter pen, which never shows up in photos. Also, I stamped the flower image twice and cut out the center of one of them so I could layer it with a dimensional to give a bit of a 3D look to the flower.

Stamps: PTI's Fancy Flourishes, Everyday Classics, Birthday Basics
Ink: PTI's Dark Chocolate, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist
Paper: PTI white, Aqua Mist
Other: foam dimensionals, clear spica glitter pen, clear gemstones from Hope Stamps Eternal, Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch, also from Hope Stamps Eternal
