Using My Gifts & Scraps!! Happy Birthday Card!!

Happy Fri.!

Hi~ya All!

I hope everyone is having a lovely start to their weekend. TGIF!!! I created this card using two gifts I received from Nilda and Kelly. Thank you soo much ladies, I really appreciate them, and since my mojo has taken a vacation, now is the perfect time to do something different for inspiration. I am late getting this posted, I actually made it yesterday and was trying for last night. Don't ya know that the batteries in my camera were dead as a doorknob, so I couldn't upload the files to my computer. When I did get them uploaded the pictures were washed out because of the flash, so I had to start all over again today. Finally, a decent picture!! I am trying to use up some of my papers and cardstock that is in my "Scrap Bin." For this card I used Bazzill bling cardstock for the base, SEI designer cardstock for the background, scalloped frame and flower. The stamp is by Stampendous that I received from Nilda, and the punched flower set is from Kelly, which is the Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set. I colored my image with Copic markers, along with Prisma pencils. Spellbinder nesties were used to cut out the stamped image and scalloped frame which is popped with dimensional for a 3-D effect. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash, along with MS punch for the scallops inside and along the side. The inside is layered and stamped with two different new sets from Stampin' Up! This card will be added to my private stash of cards, as it seems that I miss so many birthdays due to not having a card ready. C'mon ladies, get out those scraps and start creating. Have a great weekend everyone!
