Birthday Cuppa Love

Good Morning, it is Shirley posting today. I have a cute birthday card to share with you today. I have a lot of friends that are coffee and tea drinkers so this will be a great card to have on hand.

I started with a white card base and added a layer of pink and white.  The next layer is one that I made a while back when I was playing with my Ken Oliver Color Bursts.   I made them using different colors so now I have one ready for this card.  I like to make extras when I have the supplies out.  They really come in handy to help you make a quick card for an occasion you may have forgotten about.  The color bursts also are good to have for a card or project when you do not have the color of paper you need.  You just make your own.   For this background, I used the Memory Box Texture Drip Rings stencil along with Ken Oliver Color Bursts in Alazarin Crimson, Orange and just a little dab of the Ultramarine Blue, which made the hint of green on my card.

I used the PoppyStamps Teacup Stack die that just arrived from the Classy Cards store.  I put some pink and yellow card stock behind the cups.   I popped the cups up on the background with Joy Foam Pads Large

The sentiment was stamped using the Sweet n' Sassy stamps called Keep In Touch.  I like this set because it has almost every sentiment one needs in card making.

For the finishing touch, I added sequins and attached them with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.  I think the sequins just help to give the card a more festive look.   

Thanks so much for coming by today.  Have a great weekend!
