Rosy Birthday

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another challenge from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is Jacquie Southas.  Check out her fun sketch:

I wanted to do some emboss resist so pulled out one of my favourite background stamps and some bright and cheery colors and came up with this:

It was very simple to do - white heat emboss the stamp, cover with various distress inks and die-cut with a stitched, rounded-corner die.  The sentiment was cut apart so I could stamp "Happy" twice and then die-cut with a small banner die.  To add some extra black, I squirted on some Nuvo drops in black and called it done!

Thanks for visiting!  The DT have created some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.  I'm going to link this up to Just Add Ink's Emboss Resist challenge, as well as Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes Challenge and Addicted to Stamps and More's 7th birthday celebration challenge (playing along with the Birthday Card part of the challenge).

Beautiful emboss resist panel, Karren! I love the pattern of delicate roses and your color palette is stunning! Great idea to pair the rounded sentiment banners with the rounded corners on your focal point, too...Barb xx
