Happy Birthday To Me!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

The Wednesday Challenge Blog at Simon Says Stamp is celebrating 7 years with a birthday challenge. And as a side note it's my birthday today!

For my card I used MFTs Roses All Over background stamp which I white heat embossed on water colour paper and used Distress Inks to colour in. The background was pretty vivid and drowned out the sentimet so I toned it down by gold heat embossing my sentiment onto vellum. The vellum I used has been in my stash for ages and I don't use it very often because it's quite opaque compared to the usual vellum I craft with. It really has a milky quality to it.  I finished off with a few pearls and some gold thread.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Truly BEAUTIFUL! The bright embossed rose images are awesome underneath that piece of vellum! Wish you a very happy birthday, Sue! Thanks so much for playing Simon Says Stamp Wednesday “Happy Birthday” Challenge!

  5. Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Suuuuuuue, Happy birthday to you. Beautiful card, love that background stamp and looks wonderful with the vellum on top.
    Lucky for you I dont know your phone number cause I might have rung you and sung and I can tell you honestly, being hearing impaired means I am tone deaf and no one likes my singing so it could have been a bit scary.
    I hope you had a wonderful day and your family treat you special (always).
