Bloggers Challenge - They Say it's Your Birthday!



Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! As you can tell from today's title - it's all about birthday's today! You know I usually issue a birthday challenge when I need to create one - and today is no exception, it's my DH's Birthday! So, I'm taking a break from my Christmas postings to share the card I created for his special day....Check back later as I do have a card to celebrate the start of Hanukkah.

I just love this image from Innovative Stamp Creations, the scene is so peaceful. The image is stamped in Black on Watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Details:
Stamps - Innovative Stamp Creations
Ink - Black, Markers
Card Stock - Black, Close to Cocoa, Watercolor, Brocade Blue
Other - Aquapainter

Thanks for stopping by - stay warm and have a great weekend!

Love the boats in this card. Men are so hard to make cards for. My birthday card for the challenge was easier. A card for my mother in law.
