Happy Birthday Shirley!


Hi everyone.  Today' we are celebrating Shirley's birthday (shirley-bee's stamping stuff).  I made a very CAS card highlighting one of Shirley stamps from her new line, called Rosebuds (sold at STAMPlorations).  Love this sweet little rose! :)

Shirley, hope you have a wonderful birthday and that this linky party brings you even more joy!! :)

I stamped the large sentiment in black and then stamped the rosebud (also in black), curving it to fit around the sentiment ... that's one of the great things about the clear stamps, so easy to manipulate! :)  I colored the rose with Copics and added a shimmery coating with my clear Wink of Stella pen.

I then placed a mesh stencil over top and sponged on some yellow distress inks to give the card some sunshine! :)

Thanks to Maria for setting up this wonderful linky party for Shirley.  If you want to join in, the link will be open for a couple of weeks on Maria's blog (reislingmama).  I hope you'll join in!

My first thought was Shirley+Loll esque (thought I was gonna see gold embossing paste ;) but you kept it all CAS. Great card for Shirley and I love how you used the rosebud. Thanks for coming to Shirley's party.

This is beautiful, Loll! I love how the sparkly rosebud curves round the sentiment, and it all nestles perfectly on the stencilled background. Thank you so much for being part of my birthday celebration!
