Double Take Thursday - Birthday/Cuttlebug

Today is Double Take Thursday, and it was Beth's turn to challenge me! Her challenge was to make a card that you would give for a birthday, but you also had to use the Cuttlebug on your card.

I decided to break in my new set from SU and use the flower from Embrace Life. I stamped and embossed with white on vellum, then coloured it from the back with Copic Markers. I then used the Spica Glitter Gold pen to do the stamen on the flower. I also thought I would give the reverse ink cuttlebug technique a try, and I love it! I used SU light plum to ink the folder. I used shimmer paper on all of the card except the flower. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

I looked thru all my stamps and can you believe I don't have a Happy Birthday stamp? What's up with that? I have TONS of sayings and sentiments, but not a HB?? Gonna have to fix that! So this sentiment I used is something I would typically use on a birthday card for a girlfriend.

Be sure to stop by Beth's blog and see her beautiful card!! She used a neat fold on her card, and beautiful colours!

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Ohhhhhh this is so elegant and beautiful. Clearly your signature style. You and I are so much alike, yet so different in our cards. This makes it a fabulous read for our viewers. I have to admit that I only have a Happy Birthday stamp, and sentiment because I just brought it in for the class I am teaching. I still can't take my eyes off your card below. Pure delight. Thanks for playing.

I can't believe I missed this one when you made it, I think I was away in New Brunswick at that time and I got sooooo behind in my blog reading. lol :)

I looked through your 'entire' blog a couple of days ago to search for a card for our CASE challenge for Monday and I spied this one and knew I wanted to CASE it for my Sister-in-Law. So, thanks for the inspiration! :) ...Yes, I actually looked at your entire blog, it took me a while! I think I drank 3 coffees while I was browsing! lol :)

I look forward to seeing ya on Monday night! Hope you have a great weekend!
