CR84FN32 - Happy Birthday

Today is a special CR84FN challenge,  we are celebrating Mona's birthday!  Happy Birthday Mona! I hope it is wonderful!


I created a fun birthday card using the happy colors for the challenge this week.


Lisa was kind enough to gift me this adorable image (For You - The Artistic Stamper).  I love these Mabel Lucie Attwell illustrations. The baby  is so sweet bringing a bouquet of flowers.

The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a waterbrush.  The two panels were cut and embossed using the Cuttlebug Embossing folder. The one was sanded to reveal the white and the other was sponged with white paint to highlight the embossing.

The bright and happy  CR84FN32 colors with inspiration photos courtesy of Creative Mint:
