Touches of Texture

"Happy Birthday" created with Stampin' Up! products: Touches of texture stamp set; Rose Wonder stamp set; Affectionately Yours designer series paper. The stamped images are a bumble bee and a branch of flowers.The Touches of Texture stamp set by Stampin’ Up! was the inspiration for this birthday card. The card base is Watermelon Wonder card stock, the pretty paper (Watermelon Wonder and Crumb Cake) framing panel is from the Affectionately Yours specialty designer series paper, and the base of the white panel is adorned with a piece of washi tape from the Affectionately Yours designer washi tape.

An aqua pen was used to apply color to the flowers and a couple of rhinestones added a bit of pizazz.

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.
