Birthday Wishes

I made this for my Aunt, who is celebrating a birthday this coming week. I kept this card clean and simple (not a lot of layers). I used Amber's Viva La Verve sketch, VLVApr03. The "twist" was to use the Stampin' Up! colors Summer Sun, More Mustard and Baja Breeze. I don't have these colors, so I opted for PTI Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise and Aqua Mist.

At first I stamped the strip of Summer Sunrise (darker of 2 yellows) with Verve's Grateful Elegance border stamp using Versamark (watermark) ink. The pattern didn't show up as much as I wanted it to, so I added some clear embossing powder and heat embossed it.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
