Happy Birthday Week 3!

Welcome to our Birthday celebration for the year 2015! In honor of that, we've decided that our monthly challenge for January will be Birthday Wishes. We'd love for you to play along with us, and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post, or on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...and remember, using Dreamweaver products gets you bonus points towards an extra stencil!

My creation this week didn't turn out how I had first envisioned it, but I really like it. I meant for it to have a more Spring-time feel, because we could use a little Spring here in northern IL! Here's my birthday wish for this week:

LX7014 Daisy background - dry embossed on glossy cardstock, colored with Color Solutions Alcohol Inks
LL548 Daisies - paste embossed with Glossy Black, FX Powders sprinkled on then heated, outlined with a fine tip Sharpie

LG704 Birthday words stenciled with black ink
Of course, more birthday inspirations coming your way from our "A" team:

Happy Creating,

Louise....this is a beauty! Hope all is warmer for you next week! But keep those cheerful warm cards coming because it's sure to help eventually. ; )

Such an interesting look to this card, the flowers almost look like metal! I love the background and want to try this technique. Thanks for sharing.
