Blue Glass Birthday

Happy Birthday to my good friend Dar!  I created a pretty card thanks to the fun theme challenge this week over at  Hand Stamped Sentiments
The first thing I thought of was some beautiful cobalt blue vases with bright flowers in them.  While I couldn't create the cobalt blue, I did manage to add some bright flowers :) 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Watercolor Paper
Ink ~ Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Pacific Point
Stamp Sets ~ Fabulous Florets, Memorable Moments
Other Supplies ~ Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Stampin' Spritzer, Daffodil Delight Taffeta Ribbon

To create the vases, I used the watercolor paper with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and cut the bottoms off.  I sponged some Pacific Point ink over the vase and then sprayed them with a little bit of water using the Stampin' Spritzer.  Easy peasy!

Off to get my crew up and ready for the day.  I could use some good thoughts and prayers...fighting a horrible case of vertigo this morning :(  Praying it goes away quickly...this momma doesn't have time to be sick!

Happy Stamping!
