Old Fashion Cherry Blossoms- JCI46 and

I had a little time to create a card, besides the ones that will be going to convention with me, today and decided to combine two challenges. I combined Stacey's Jewelery Color Inspiration #46 and the Creative Challenge. The colors for Stacey's challenge were Not Quite Navy, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel and Very Vanilla and Shelli's challenge was to create a Birthday card (you can never have enough Birthday cards on hand)!

Here is what I came up with. I stamped the cherry blossom stamp from the Embrace Life stamp set on Water Color paper in Creamy Caramel ink. Then I used my Aqua painter and painted the flowers with Ruby Red and Not Quite Navy ink. I then used a toothbrush with watered down Creamy Carmel ink and "spattered" the image a bit. The "Happy Birthday" is from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set.
I used a Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware (Deal of the week this week!!) Designer holder to dress up the sentiment. The fibers on the side of the card are the Linen Thread and the Hemp Twine.

Here is a closer look at the tooth brush "spattering" on the Water Color paper.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Love the weathered look of your panels and tag! This is a fabulous take with the JCI46 colors and a great submission for Shelli's challenge! Thanks for playing the JCI46...can't wait to share the new & improved Curtain Call! Hey, are you going to Convention?
