Happy Birthday Mr C.

It is hubby's birthday and of course I made him a card. He is the reason I am so in love with my pencils (and him too, of course). Since I am usually the one that gets roses throughout the year, I decided he needed some for his birthday and so I colored up this image from Power Poppy's Everything's Rosy Digital Stamp Set.

I printed the image onto Strathmore Paint Pad paper and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I wanted bright yellow roses to pop off the page. I completed the image by coloring the mug in two shades of blue.

I stamped the sentiment in the top right hand corner with Versafine Onyx black ink and applied clear embossing powder. The three words are from three different stampsets.

I then matted the colored panel onto a piece of gold cardstock, which then got added to a piece of blue cardstock and then onto a white cardbase. I did not add any further embellishments as I did not think the card needed anything else.
