Happy Birthday Anne Marie!!

Hi Stampers! 

This past week, Anne Marie Hile celebrated a milestone birthday and I wanted to create a card in her honor for the  Dynamic Duos Happy Birthday Surprise Linky Party for Anne Marie!   

 I met Anne Marie a few years ago through my Guest Designer spot on The Paper Players and have always admired her artwork!  Now I get to interact with her weekly again through the Dynamic Duos Design Team- I am so thrilled!

Anne Marie loves pink so I decided to incorporate some shades of pink in the card and use the CCMC277Sketch for the layout.   I hope you will have the time to visit the Dynamic Duos site (scroll down a bit past the new challenge to see all of the other cards for Anne Marie) as well as the Create with Connie and Mary site
To create this card:

Use an AquaPainter™ to apply a light coat of Pool Party Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  

Allow to dry and stamp the Notable Notions script image over the background as well as the stem from Field Flowers using Early Espresso Classic Ink.  

Punch out with the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch and adhere another 2 ½” Circle from Early Espresso cardstock behind the stamped images. 
Stamp the flowers from Field Flowers onto a separate piece of Whisper White using Early Espresso Classic Ink.  Color using Stampin’ Write Markers- Blush Blossom, Primrose Petals and Sahara Sand. Add a few highlights with the Chalk Marker and “fussy-cut” the flowers mounting onto the stems using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Trim and mount onto a card base of Early Espresso cardstock.

Ink the interior of the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder using Raspberry Ripple Classic Ink and emboss a piece of Raspberry Ripple cardstock.  Trim for the vertical panels of the sketch (rounding the outside corners of the smallest panel using the Envelope Punch Board). 

Create the banner from I Am Me DSP and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  Add the scrap trim of the embossed Raspberry Ripple cardstock. 

Add the vertical panels, the banner to the card front and the focal image (using Stampin’ Dimensionals®).   

Stamp the sentiment using Early Espresso cardstock, punch out using the Word Window Punch and adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (punched with the Modern Label punch). 

Stamp Sets: Field Flowers, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Notable Notions

Ink: Early Espresso, Pool Party, Stampin’ Write markers- Old Olive, Blushing Bride, Primrose Petals, Sahara Sand

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Early Espresso, Raspberry Ripple, Designer Series Paper- I Am Me, retired Blushing Bride

Accessories: Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Vintage Wallpaper (retired), Woodgrain;   AquaPainter™, Punches- 2 ½” XL Circle, Word Window, Modern Label, Hexagon (for banner), Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by- Happy Birthday Anne Marie!!
