celebrate today

Happy Thursday! I am here to share a card made using stamps from My Cute Stamps! I used the whimsical Celebrate Today stamp set for this card. I am also playing along with Lisa Johnson's Poppy Seed Challenge #1 and Embellish Magazine's Embellish Borders Color Challenge.

Lisa's challenge is to use crystal, a flower image and light yellow. I am hoping my yellow here is ok though. Since the Embellish Borders Color Challenge also has yellow in their color combo this time, I decided to combine both challenges. I clear-embossed images from the Celebrate Today set and sponged the whole piece with scattered straw. The main image is colored with Copics. I think this card also qualities for The Olympics of Stamping challenge for the birthday category over at Moxie Fab World. Before I knew it, this is another "multi-task card!" LOL!! =)

That's all from me today. Hope you have a wonderful day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!

Way to go combining challenges, Alice! I love the background paper that you created... I'm thinking that's resist embossing? And that image is sweet simplicity. Awesome.
