Ismaki Challenge

I made this card following the sketch on Ismaki. Its another birthday card for my husband`s office. Here are the details:

All the papers I used are from Provo Craft. I distressed all the edges using a sponge and walnut stain and vintage photo. The lady stamp is from Hampton Arts and I embossed it with garnet embossing powder. I used the Inkadinkado Opaque White pen to highlight the image.
I used the long rectangle nestibility and the scalloped long rectangle on the other layers. I used the dark blue glaze pen to dot the edges for more detail.
Part of the challenge was to use paint so I embossed the flower stamp and then painted with blush rose Twinkling H20s. I put a dot of sapphire blue on ice in the middle. I used the label 1 nestibility to make the Happy Birthday label.
On the inside I used the paper I had cut the front label out of and then inserted another one size smaller.

I didn`t do much today...still not feeling perfect. I had a wonderful day cuddled up in front of the fire. Guess I`ll have to get some housework done tomorrow. Don`t forget to check out the blog candy.

Have a wonderful day.
