Elegant birthday

Here is a personalized card for another coworker who is also a great friend:

The card is truly the color of the top image.  I was at such an angle at the bottom image for the gold that the green's albedo went up... or something... I don't know. It's just science.

Supplies and notes:

  • Sea-green cardstock
  • Stampin' Up stamps inked in Ranger Archival in Jet Black
  • Sentiment written with black Liquitex gesso 
  • Accents and flowers using Finetec metallic watercolors
  • Accents added with Black Diamond Stickles
That's about it.

I'd like to share this with the  following challenges:


  1. What a very pretty card. Love your colour scheme. I'm sure your co-worker will love and appreciate it. Thanks for joining in the fun at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Tristan DT
