Color Blocked birthday wishes

I got some new goodies this weekend and they were all bargains! I used a couple of them on this card.

Color block

This card is a 5” square of Core’dinations card stock embossed with the Cuttlebug Frills border folder on all four sides and sanded to bring out the detail. The white layers is the Martha Stewart Double Arches punch (50% off coupon used) around the page (4” square). To put down the color behind the sentiment, I used Copic markers on a square acrylic block and spritzed with alcohol before stamping in the center of the doily. I then stamped the Rubbernecker sentiment with Rusty Hinge distress ink over the top. The spray is created with Spellbinders foliage dies as well as some other MS punches. I added some peach colored organdy ribbon which was heated slightly. I then topped it off with some hydrangea punched flowers and the ribbon rosette which was another of the bargains I got this weekend. Six of them for $.50 in a clearance bin. They were vanilla, but I airbrushed this one to match my card. Nice!

Thanks for stopping by. Please come again soon!
