Clean & Simple Birthday

Hello everyone,

Today's Clean & Simple sketch challenge was the perfect inspiration for today's card.

The card base is from Recollections. The image is Stampin' Up Playful Petals. It was coloured with Faber Castell artist pens after being heat embossed with Stampin' Up clear embossing powder. The sentiment is Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Greetings. As usual, I wasn't all that thrilled with my colouring so I thought I would try covering the image with Close To My Heart Liquid Glass and see what happens.

I love the clean and simple aspect of this card but I have no confidence in my colouring abilities. Practise, practise, practise. Again, I had a tough time getting a nice photograph. My camera doesn't like white space. I'm going to try again tomorrow in daylight to see if I get a better photo. It has also been tough double-tasking between blogging and watching the Olymic opening ceremonies.

I'll just hope that you enjoy today's card and come back to SPI again soon.
