Hi friends!  I hope all my friends in the USA had a great 4th yesterday!  I have a birthday card to share today using the amazing Whimsical Blooms stamp set and the Flourish & Whimsy stencil along with some Tickle embossing glitter.

I die cut a bunch of the Whimsical Blooms and then got to work stamping in different colors.  This bloom uses Pixie Dust and then the detail layer was embossed using the Tickle embossing glitter.  The stem was stamped using Garden Party ink.

For the bottom of my card, I masked and sponged using Pixie Dust ink and my life changing blending brushes.  After the ink blending was finished I placed the stencil over top and pounced my versamark ink pad through the stencil and then embossed using the Tickle embossing glitter. 

I did forget to use my powder tool before I sprinkled the embossing glitter over top and Catherine's ink stay wet a bit longer than regular dye inks, so I got some extra embossing where I didn't want it originally.  In the end I left it because it just added a bit more interest to the bottom.  :)

I stamped the sentiment and then added some black and white twine to finish it off.

Here's another one I did using Fiesta Blue on the bottom and the same Tickle embossing glitter.

I remembered to use my powder tool on this one.

I will add the top card over at Seize the Birthday.
