Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - celebrate you

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Celebrate - for the 6th Anniversary of the Monday Challenge.


I chose to make a card with bright tropical colors. The main panel was achieved by stamping Distress Ink on an acrylic block, spritzing with water, applying to card stock, blotting with a paper towel and repeating the process until the desired color blend was achieved. Using a background birthday stamp I second-generation stamped on the panel. A flower was stamped in the upper left corner and a 'celebrate you' sentiment was stamped both with MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink. The panel was die-cut with part of the flower cut off. A diagonally-striped strip was added. For a touch of sparkle, gem stones in the colors of the ink were added to the flower center.

Hope you're having an enjoyable day!
