Seasonal Happy Birthday

Hello & Happy Monday!

What a weekend!
Yesterday was just a yukky rainy day!
Did not get much relaxing done as Kelsey came over for the day.

Today I have a really pretty Fall birthday card to show.
I said last week that I have a bunch of birthday's coming up in the next few weeks that I wanted to get made and out of the way before the craziness of the holidays come.
This is another one I made...

To start off, I was inspired by a card my friend, Vicki Burdick, made.
She embossed her leaves with Winter White Embossing Powder then watercolored her leaves.
I am not much of a watercolor girl so I took a piece of Whisper White and used Sponge Daubers to put down Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Terracotta Tile inks to get a colorful panel. Then I embossed my leaves with Winter White Embossing Powder and die cut my leaves out. I got 3 leaves from a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Whisper White cardstock.
I used some Terracotta Tile DSP and a piece of the matching ribbon.
I also used some Braided Trim to tie a bow. I took the bone folder over the tails of my bow and they curled! I loved the look!

Card Details:

Stamps: Perennial Birthday, Gather Together
Ink: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Terracotta Tile, Versamark
Cardstock: Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, Terracotta Tile DSP
Accessories: Gathered Leaves Dies, Stitched Nested Dies, Winter White Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Sponges, Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon, Braided Trim, White Pearls, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

I also added some White Pearls on 2 of the corners for interest.
I always reach for the rhinestones and forget I have pearls.
Honestly, the pearls look more elegant on this than rhinestones and i'm happy with it!

My thoughts today...

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

You can't celebrate in the fall better then this! Look at that great gingham! Love the white embossed leaf. I do not do that enough.

That's a clever idea to emboss the leaves and then water color them, and what a great look for having done that! The gingham looks great and I just love that piece down the middle that separates the dsps! Beautiful card!
