Paisley Birthday

I was suppose to put myself on a shopping hold, and not buy stamps for awhile, but I found this brand new stamp company called Joy Clair and fell for this beautiful stamp set called Paisley Bouquet.

I don't have any other stamps like this, so I didn't feel guilty buying it! :) I stamped this image with black memento ink onto whisper white card stock from Stampin Up. This card stock works wonderfully with alcohol markers, which is what I used to color this with.

Some retired Blendabilitites, and Promarkers were used. I followed the same colors that came on the package of stamps. I think it looks quite pretty.

I don't have a fancy label die of any kind. So I decided to cut this out using my Creative Memories cutting system. For the outside frame, I made my own.
I traced around the oval with a pencil, then using another flower image from this set, stamped all around it just overlapping a little each time.

Then I fussy cut all around it, and it made a pretty backing for my main image. The sentiment I stamped and punched, then sponged the edges a bit. My Mom's birthday is today, so I will give her this.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a creative day!!
