Happy Birthday Billie!


This is the card I sent to my on line friend Billie (myboys) for her birthday today.  She shares her special day w/ my husband who is 50 today - YIKES! 

Stacy (twinshappy) challenged us to make a card w/ flowers and a blue theme for Billie, so here it is.  I used a soon to be released stamp sheet from Innovative Stamp Creations called harlequin flowers II.  Isn't the frame awesome?  The flowers are also fabulous colored or stamped as a background as shown here.  The sentiment is included in the set.  This and 3 other wickedly cool new sets will be available for purchase after 9/2!

I used Adirondack Pigment inks for the intense rich colors. Snow Cap, Denim & Pitch Black.


  1. I love these colors!!
    and that flower is so pretty, too!
    Beautiful card, Billie will LOVE it!

  2. Beautiful Shelly, she will love it. The flowers look wonderful!

  3. Shelly, the simplicity of your colors and card really adds to its elegance. TFS
