Birthday Wishes

Both my older children have birthdays this week.  My oldest turns 17 today. Happy Birthday Zac! Yikes... I remember him crawling around on the floor and it seems like yesterday.  My middle child turns 15 on next Saturday.  Happy Birthday Kaeli! I have been busy making birthday cards.

I am sharing Kaelis's birthday card today which I created in shades of green for the Inspiration Journal blog challenge shades of green.   (Kaeli is a big fan of green, orange, and purple)

 Here is it laying flat:
I thought these fun stamps from Chocolate Baroque - Punky Romance would be fun for my daughters card.  They are a nice combination of steampunk and feminine details of flowers and butterflies.  I think a good combination for a teenager? 

The background is a combination of glimmer mists and chalkboard mists in shades of green. I stamped the images multiple times using black ink and layered a few of the flowers, gears and butterflies. 

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Begin Each New Day - BB0441-E and the shape of the card is from the Triptych Kit templates.

I will be sharing Zac's birthday card tomorrow as there is a special blog hop celebrating another birthday tomorrow! 

Have a lovely Saturday!
