Cure for the Monday Blues #39

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge #39:


Isn't that photo gorgeous?
The leaves on the dark plate reminded me of the leaves in the new Love Blooms stamp set,
so I pulled out my Reverse Confetti to make my card.



I debated on stamping my background with the new tiny circle stamps in Right Here, Right Now,
but then I remembered the Simon Says Stamp stencil I have and decided to use that.
I placed it over my stamper's select white panel and inked it up with Versamark,
then I heat embossed it in gold.
Then, I repeated the process with another part of the stencil and silver embossing powder.
I diecut the scalloped circle from smokey shadow cardstock using the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts.
I stamped my sentiment (using Beautiful Banners for "happy birthday" and All About You for "to you") and heat embossed them in gold.
I stamped the leaves from Love Blooms and heat embossed those as well.
A sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold sequins finishes it off.


 

  


Thanks for looking!
