Happy Birthday Card

Skipping Stones Design has a color challenge this week.  Here's the inspiration:


And here's my card.


I started by dry embossing the background with a Stampin' Up Elegant Lines embossing folder.  The painted strips were painted with Twinkling H2O's onto watercolor paper.  The heart punch is from EK Success, the sentiment is from Skipping Stones Design, heat embossed in white.  The bling is from Recollections.

This is also for this weeks challenge at CAS-ual Friday blog to put a bling on it!

Thanks for dropping by,
Ivanka

you are using your Twinkling H2O's so well - glad you dug them out - you inspire me to use them also. I have a card running around in my head that uses them.

Pretty card - love the simplicity and colors.
