A Birthday Celebration!

It's a Big Birthday Celebration Kind of day....remember I said I had something pretty, something interesting and something beautiful for you?.....well keep reading!

I love using non-typical images for Birthday Cards. Really anything can be a Birthday card with the right sentiment. So I used this gorgeous Forest of Trees set from Flourishes to create something beautiful with the feeling of growth and blossoming. I really think that represents what Flourishes has done the past 2 years, and what I've been able to do having the privelage of working with them. I feel very blessed to be a part of this Design Team, and a tiny extension of this company. The card also holds great promise for the year ahead as a Birthday card too, and that's what we all want right? A year ahead to grow. That's my heart anyway - to always be growing. Artistically, Emotionally, but especially Spiritually, my heart is to grow deeper roots and blossoming branches in my walk with Christ.

Alright - what did I do with this card? I stamped the tree on watercolor paper and gave it some pretty color with reinkers...and Stampin' Write Markers too for some deeper definition. Then I sponged the deckled rectangle shape using my Nestie as a template. After the entire card was put together I added some pretty Flower Soft blossoms. It really has the best effect. I created the sentiment on my computer and cut and arranged it into a sentiment flag. I love this DSP from Basic Grey....Sultry


Alright what's the next big news? We are celebrating at Flourishes! Two years ago this month, this one of a kind stamp boutique that I love very much opened its doors to a whole new kind of creative expression. Now, we want you to help us celebrate! Today, the entire design team cooked up creations to honor Flourishes' special day. We want you to join us! Simply make a birthday creation of your own - link your card to the Flourishes Newsletter post or upload to SCS using the keyword FLLCBDAY. We'll pick one lucky winner with the prize being a stamp set of your choice! So, make time for play time and you might just be a winner! Don't forget to click onto the Flourishes Newsletter tomorrow -- there is a BIG announcement that you won't want to miss! And here's a little hint...

And THIRD what's the Something Wonderful for YOU??? Well, you can't have a Birthday without presents right? Thanks to the generosity of the Flourishes, I'm giving away THIS!!! The very Flourishes set I used today and a gorgeous Spellbinders Frameabilities. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post (ok you can comment about my card :) BUT also, what you love about Flourishes too!).

Ida P. Krause said...

Well I'd be a "fool" not to comment on this gorgeous card.
Flourishes has some really beautiful stamps. One of my personal favorites has been the Coffee set (Coffee with Friends)but I enjoy all their stamps. Too bad I can't afford them all.

Traci M said...

I love your card idea, I did the same thing (not as lovely) with the Thoughts and Prayers set using the tree image and It's Time to Bloom sentiment for a 30th birthday...I agree you can make anything a birthday card. This is so lovely, the sponging adds so much, and I love Flourishes, especially this set. They are versatile, elegant, and easy to color with their shaded designs. Thanks for sharing!

Jill Haddad said...

Stunning card, Christine. Love pink and brown together anyway - but this really pops. What I like the very best about Flourishes is the elegance of their stamp designs. They are unbeatable in that respect. e.g - the sweet pea stamp. Have you EVER seen a stamp that compares to that????

What a beautiful card. I love all the details.

What I love about Flourishes is how classy the stamps are.
And couldn't we all use a little class now and then?

Thank you for giving me a chance at this Christine!

Flower soft texture, what fun with Flourishes' Birthday #2! Looks like Trees set needs a home here. Changing to easy storage stamps with no trees in the mix to date. Make those papercraft creative demos beautiful as always with Spellbinders and Trees. Well done!
Sentiments with font flair always a card topper.
Happy Birthday, Flourishes.
Keep Looking UP!

Anonymous said...

Your cards are always so fab but this one is so making me smile. I just finally bought some flower soft. I have loved it for a long time but just couldn't find stamps to use it with. And then TAH DAH!! There is your card giving me wonderful inspiration. I always believe things happen for a reason. And I have to admit I don't own any Flourishes stamps. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I win but otherwise, I'm pretty sure that this will be my first Flourish purchase!!
