Razzleberry Vogue Birthday Wishes

Today's card is a special one I made for my wonderful friend Jana's birthday yesterday!  (For those who don't already know, Jana is who helped me get started with Stampin' Up! more than five years ago -- she was my demonstrator before I became one -- and continues to be a mentor and source of inspiration!)

For this card, I used the Very Vintage wheel with Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card stock.  The flowers from Vintage Vogue were also stamped in Rich Razzleberry, and I added a touch of Only Orange in the center, then blended with an Aquapainter and added some Crystal Effects just in the center.  The ribbon is Pretty in Pink 5/8" Satin Ribbon -- I dyed it Rich Razzleberry by running it across the ink pad and sponging a bit to make the color more even.   The greeting is from the Well Scripted stamp set (in the Occasions Mini . . . only two weeks left to order from that!)  I punched out the greeting with the Large Oval Punch, sponged the edges, and then layered that onto another Very Vanilla piece, punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch.  I love how those two punches work together! 

A little hard to see from the photo but there is actually a layer of Very Vanilla underneath the Rich Razzleberry layer, and on top of the Very Vanilla base.  I really like the look of tone on tone layering.  Have been seeing a good bit of it lately from other cardmakers, too. 

Thanks for stopping by!
