Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy Belated Birthday

Hi Everyone,
 
If you hand make a card, how can anyone be upset that you're late in remembering their birthday, right? Especially if it's pink and has glitter :)
 
A simple embossed background lets this beautiful Fanfare Square from DRS Designs shine as the main element on my card today. I inked my stamp in Versamark and then in Versafine black ink, before embossing in rainbow embossing powder. It's basically a clear powder with some glittery flecks in it, but when paired up with a dark ink, it has a marvelous sheen. I die cut the square and added a bit of pink color with a Copic marker. The Tiny Belated Birthday greeting was a perfect fit in the center and I added some dimension to the card by using pop dots to adhere some the layers of my focal element together.
 
 
 
 
 
For embellishment, I used just the flowers from the Three Flowers with Butterfly stamp by fussy cutting them and adding them in a little group.
 
Thanks for dropping by and remember to join us every Thursday for a challenge. The theme this week is "Lucky Stripe". Hope to see you there!
