Playing along with the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week and I'm getting my entry in on time this week :).
My entry is featuring a few new stamps that I picked up at the CK Convention and Stampers Alley.
The central silhouette leaf image is from Impression Obsession. It was stamped and embossed with white ink and white powder. The frame around the blue background was created by cutting the next smaller size nestability and using that as a mask, stamping the leaf background stamp, remove the mask and emboss. I wanted the frame to be softer than the main image so I sanded off some of the embossing.
The small flowers are from Heartfelt Creations and cut out with their matching die from spellbinders.
The butterfly is from Hero Arts.
The sentiment is from PTI and so is the texture plate that was used on the white and blue pieces of card stock.
It's a rainy, dreary day here today but as Annie would say "The sun will come out tomorrow". Seriously, that's the forecast........the sun is coming out for my birthday and going away again the day after. We are going out with my cousin and her husband tonight to celebrate because his birthday was yesterday, so we're going out the day between our two days. Just happened to think that means neither one of us get free birthday cake, I guess we could have planned that better!
Thanks for sharing your day with me :)
