It is quite a different technique using Blendabilities compared to using Stampin' Write Markers. I found it difficult to work as delicately, but overall, I was happy with the result. I will enter it for the challenge at SUO Challenges too. I was sure I had a movie in my DVD collection, called "Lavender and Lace", but I had a quick look on my shelf and it is actually "Ladies In Lavender" starring the wonderful actresses Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. So, I suppose, it was the mistaken memory which caused me to choose the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder to go along with the Wisteria Wonder. I love shades of purple too, as well as the fragrance of lavender.
I tried a couple of ways to include the numerals, and decided that this solution was the tidiest. I stamped the sentiment, Happiest Birthday, which is also in Apothecary Art, and cut the two words apart.
The numerals have been stamped, fussy cut and adhered to disguise where the sentiment was cut apart. I don't suppose you can see that I have stamped on Shimmery White rather than Whisper White. It is a sturdier card and has a delightful shimmer to it. Do you know, I believe that Apothecary Art and the matching Framelits were the first ever items in my Stampin' Up! collection that matched! Now everything I have matches. It was a pleasure to work on this special order, I hope the recipient enjoys the good wishes the card brings to her also.
Are you enjoying a pleasant weekend, or did you have to work?
Very happy to be picked in the Top 3 at SUO challenges.
Rachel Palmieri. Rachel's coloring is so soft and pretty. What a beautiful way to personalize a milestone birthday.
