Artful Birthday Wishes

Today's card was created for the Color Combo Challenge on Split Coast. We had to use Wild Wasabi, Taken with Teal and White.

I used Julee's Mojo43 sketch . I stamped the silhouette flower from Artful INKables with Wasabi ink on a white Nestability oval and layered it to a Teal scalloped Nestability oval. I used the Floral Fantasy folder with my cuttlebug on the white panel and the bottom is a piece of designer paper from Stampin Up Afternoon Tea. The twill is from JoAnnes and I added Crystal Ice stickles for a little shimmer. Here is a close up of the stickles and pretty bloom.
On the inside I cut 2 small strips of the designer paper and attached them to the top and bottom of the card. I stamped the sentiment from PapertreyInk on white card stock and cut and embossed it with my rectangle Nestability.
Well I am happy to report that I got my router set up on my computer so that my new laptop is now connected to the internet via a wireless connection (I am SO smart!! LOL!!) At least it seems to be working so I think I did it correctly! Tomorrow I tackle loading Adobe PhotoShop on it and try to learn how to use the software!
I'm so glad you stopped by today!

Wow, this is a beautiful card. I love the colored twill; it matches so well! And you've paid so much attention to all the details, inside & out!
Congrats on your computer savvy. I can't wait to hear how you do on the Photoshop. I had a TERRIBLE time learning it (free trial version); hopefully it was just ME! You can do so many things with it and I hear so many positives, I hope that it was just me being computer illiterate!

I was just awestruck by this card. Maybe it's the colors, not sure. But it is definitely eye catching!
