Because I Care Birthday Card

Sorry this card is so dark.  I had been messing with the settings on my camera and forgot to set them back.  If you click on the photo you can see it a bit closer and brighter.  

I took out my Hostess Level 1 "Because I Care" set.  I wanted a pretty flower for the front of a birthday card I needed to make.  

This was an extremely easy card to make.  I used the "Direct to Rubber" technique on the flower with Always Artichoke, Marina Mist and Pacific Point markers.  I colored the leaves in with the Always Artichoke.  Then I colored in the whole flower with Marina Mist.  And then I used the "Thumping Technique" on the flower with the Pacific Point marker.  That technique is when you take the marker and hold it toward the opposite end and tap it on your image.  The image picks up bits of that color in a more random way then if you were to pick spots to color in.  This flower was perfect for that technique.

The words are from my computer. I printed out a full sheet of them and use them as I need them!

This was a fun and very quick card to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
