"Happy Birthday" card using white pen...

This week at Practical Scrappers our challenge was to use a white pen/marker. I used one of my white pens, and I can't find it at the moment to let you know what brand it is... it's somewhere under the pile of stuff on my table. Sorry!

I really like how this card came out though. I saw a tutorial at Studio Calico for these flowers. Here is a link for the tutorial.... HERE!!!! Give them a try, they are so fun and easy to make. When I saw the tutorial I had to make them so that's where the card came from. I used Inkadinkado "Floral Flourishes" clear stamp set and CTMH "Happy Birthday" stamp set. After I stamped the floral images I went over with my white pen in several spots just to add little extra touches. I also did some white stitching around the card.

Used some buttons in the centers of the flowers and chalked the edges of the flowers. For one of the flowers I used my scalloped decorative scissors. I like how that one turned out... (it's the smallest flower if you can't tell) very cute. :) Oh and I also embossed "Happy Birthday" with clear embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Let me know what you think of this card and the flowers!! :) Don't forget to check out Practical Scrappers and all of the awesome talent over there!!!! If you need more ideas on how to use a white pen head over the PS!!!

Let me know if you get a chance to play with the flowers. I would LOVE to see your project using them!!!

Have fun and HUGS!!!
