Glitzy Birthday!

Glitzy Birthday Card
Hello everyone! Today's card combines three challenges:  Simon Says Stamp: Mask It, Freshly Made Sketches #239, and Little Tangles Challenge #69: Embossing. I love it when it's possible to get three-in-one....and it turns out fairly decent!!



For Simon Says Stamp, I masked the background and sponged PTI's Green Peacock, Lovely Lady, and Summer Sunrise. For Little Tangles Challenge, I embossed just about everything I could--PTI's Peonies on Parade flowers and leaves and Swoosh sentiments--birthday. I watercolored the flowers and leaves with a water brush in pinky, red colors with a hint of purple on the bud. The leaves were a mixture of greens I had dried on my pallet.  Finally, the layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches.

Now it's time to get gussied up for the Wade Bowen concert benefiting the Mother's March of Dimes. It'll be a day of Texas Country Music and fun since the rain has moved on out!!  Thanks for stopping by!
