Birthday Echos

I just LOVE this Stampin' Up! "Echo's of Kindness" set. I'm going to miss it when the new book comes out. But for now I'm going to use it a lot so I (hopefully) get sick of seeing it so it will be easy to say goodbye to it!!! I haven't had much luck with that in the past!!! LOL

Anyway, I thought I would play with the new "in" colors as well. For the main part of the card I used Pacific Blue and the layer is Kiwi Kiss. And of course Whisper White!!!

I used the "Watercolor Vine" wheel and Pacific Blue ink on the Pacific Blue main part of the card. I could have used VersaMark but I don't feel it would make a dark enough image that I was looking for.

I stamped the flower image twice and colored it in with a blender pen and the Pacific Blue ink pad. I sponged the edges with Kiwi Kiss and layered it on top of a piece of Kiwi Kiss.

And once again I used my "Happy Birthday" that I printed out on the computer. Yup, I still have some left!!! LOL I layered it on top of another larger round circle and then on top of the scallop. This was a quick and simple card to make!! I need to find more words to fit in the 1-1/4" circle and print them out so I can have a file of words for quick cards!!! And one of the great things about using the computer to do your words, you don't have a stamp to clean up or put away when you are done!!! It's obvious that I have issues with doing that. It was one of the things I hoped I could tend to this year and so far it hasn't worked. So much for that resolution!!! I think it lasted about a week!!! And that's pretty long for me!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today!
