SSS Birthday Stamps

Hello!!! How's your weekend been? Almost over, and probably really over by the time you read this!

I had a Birthday last week, and I was blessed to get this free Birthday stamp set from Simon Says Stamps.  It came free with a purchase, of course, but I found some supplies I needed to go along with it. I love the much fun! The stars were part of it, and I enjoyed using the various sizes included.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment in VersaFine Black Ink and then I added the stars in Gina K Design's Turquoise Sea. The ribbon came from Stephanie Barnard's Stamps of Life, but the cardstock is all Gina K. I thought the two worked well together. I colored the image with Copic markers.

This was the second attempt to create a card. I had first used a star stencil with glistening glitter paste in that turquoise color, but it was way too overwhelming. Beautiful, but overwhelming for the little elephant. Stamping the stars worked better.

Thanks for stopping by today! I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again real soon ~
