*New on the Blog* Happy Birthday Friend

Ok guys. My first card since my reject from PC!Β  There are elements of this card I like. For starters, I like how I water ink distressed my nestability using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.. I LOVE the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis Punch. And I love the color scheme, thank you JUGS! The little polka dotted tree stamp is adorable (thanks Paulina). I tried my hand atΒ  coloring with some TOMBOW markers (thanks again Paulina), but let’s face it, I didn’t do well in staying in the lines in Kindergarten, so obviously nothing has changed years later!! But there is just something missing with this card. Can’t put my finger on it…. Hope everyone is having a fabulous Tuesday!


Stamps: Hero Arts (Cling Dots), Memory Box Dotty Tree Birds, Practicing Creativity You’re Dandy (sentiment)
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China, Peeled Paint), PTI Inks (Summer Sunrise, Burnt Sienna, Fresh Snow
Other: Nestabilities Label One, Martha Stewart Garden Trellis Punch, TomBow Pens (Earth), PTI Dark Chocolate Ribbon, Pop Dots
