Moxie birthday card

Hi Happy Tuesday. How is everyone? We are doing good. My baby and I, we reach the 28 week mark and official enter the third trimester. It's full of surprise everyday and my new hubby is to discover his new tricks everyday. Thank you all so kind and sweet to leave me a comment and send your thoughts to me. I am very appreciated.

Today I have a birthday card to share. I saw this picture on Moxie Fab World . Wow, the photo is too pretty and inspired me to make this card. I love the soft color and never know pink and blue will go so well together. I know this will be perfect for a dear friend.  I am so happy to be able to play with my blending tool with colors again. It's been too long since the last time I use this technique.
Here is my card. To create the background, I Stamped and white embossed the Old Letter Writing on white cardstock. I then stamped the Elegant Weed in black and let it dry overnight. I used 4 different distress ink and the blending tool to add colors. Tie on ribbon and adhere on black card base.
I die cut the label and hand trim the black frame. Stamped the sentiment in black and the Elegant Weed in Antique Linen+Tea Dye and ink up the edge. Pop off on card with foam tape.

I also made a greeting message for inside the card. I used the same stamp and color to echo the sentiment label on the card front.

Stamp: (S4878 Old Letter Writing, CG185 Elegant Weeds, CL371 Essential Messages) Hero Arts
Dye ink: (Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Antique Linen, Tea Dye) Ranger
Pigment ink: (Midnight black) Tsukineko
Watermark ink; White embossing powder
Die: (Label 4) Spellbinders

Thank for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
