Birthday Bliss

Hello friends, I sure had a great day today. I had the pleasure of having my grandson for the day. His parents and sister went to see a horse that was for sale. His Mom thought he may be bored with the trip as it was about a 2 hour ride each way plus the time they would have spent viewing the horse and talking to its owner.

They did not purchase the horse because my daughter felt that the horse was very under weight ( 100+ lbs) and its feet were not in very good condition. Although her first instincts were to take the horse and nurse it, she knew that she could also be contaminating her other horses if this horse had a respiratory condition.

Just before Ryan arrived I had started this card. Earlier I had seen a card on Stampin Connection by Madeline Morcelo were she had adhered circles and ovals on her card and I just had to try that with the lattice folder. I love how this turned out if I do say so myself.

I did not color the image, but I did take one of my pink gel pens and color the dots, one of the layers and the swirly thing on one of the layers. I sponged Pink Pirouette on the stamped image.

Thanks so much for stopping by, let me know what you think ok.

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Birthday Bliss

Paper: Pretty In Pink, Early Expresso, Whisper White

Ink: Black, Pink Pirouette

Accessories: Several Circle Punches, Oval Punches, Lattice Embossing Folder, Textured Embossing Plate

Really like this technique! I have tried it on other cards, but not with the circles and ovals. I do like how it turned out for you and the color combo! I am following from Stampin' Connection. I look forward to you visiting when you get a chance.

Very nice card! I really like the circles. I checked out some of your older posts and really like your style. The cards you have done and not colored the main image are among my favorites. Thanks for the follow on my blog.
