FSS: Let's Celebrate



It's Wednesday and my turn to bring you a project from Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  Today have a festive birthday card to share with bright summery colours.

I stamped the wire and lanterns from String Me Along with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the lanterns in bright summery colors.  I nested together two of the sentiments from Everyday Expressions and stamped them in the bottom corner of my card and finally stamped and coloured two stars from Weather Through around the sentiment, then I used Copic markers to color my images.






  

There are so many birthdays in the summertime with my family and friends.  
What about yours?

Very excited, meeting Ardyth today for lunch. Wish you could all join us!


Cardstock:  White (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: String me Along, Everyday Expressions, Weather Through (Fresh Squeezed Stamps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
other: assorted Copics
