SR#1 - Stampin' Royalty Blog Challenge

Soooo..... COOL!
     I found the start of a new blog challenge, called:  Stampin' Royalty.  This brand new challenge starts us off celebrating it's birth!  The challenge... create a Birthday Card.

SO... since I know that I'm ALWAYS late sending my sister her birthday card (in Feb) that I would get an early jump on it!  (Don't look any further, Sissy, if your reading this!!)

Here's my take on this challenge.  I used the ornament punch as a vase simply by cutting off a tiny bit of the bottom.  Then I ran it through my Big Shot using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, and then painted the raised portion of the embossing with Platinum Shimmer Paint.  Add some branches and blossoms, pop up the vase on a dimensional, and VOILA it's an INSTANT vase of prettiness!

Here's a close up of the vase and the shimmer painting

Here's the inside of the card...

Ok, now that it's made, I think I'll get it addressed and then it will be all ready to go! 

Happy Birthday, Tina!
