I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Today is the Best Day Ever

 Hello crafty peeps,

I'm posting my card for this week's Paper Players Challenge. This week Claire is our hostess with the monthly color challenge. Our colors this time are yellow, red and olive green. I decided to make a pretty floral birthday card using Gina K Designs stamps. In addition to the Paper Players Challenge, my card also works for the Gina K Monthly Mixe Challenge. The challenge for August is to use multiple greetings/sentiments on our cards.

The images are stamped with Black Onyx ink and colored with Copic markers. There is a house down the street from us that has several beautiful Dahlia plants close to the street. Some have huge blooms as large as small dinner plates. Many are the variety with bright colored tips, which is what I was trying to emulate in my coloring. 

Here is the inside of the card with the Birthday wishes greeting.

Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for stopping in,
