Happy Birthday, Sharron!

Our dear friend Sharron Gregory is having a birthday today!  So of course we are celebrating with a birthday blog hop :)!!  When Sharron makes a card, I always think that every element is just perfectly placed and so well coordinated...the end result is always so stylish!   I decided to use the newly-released Waltzingmouse Stamps sets Putting on the Ritz and Art Deco Backgrounds to make a birthday card with style just for her (and oh how the new sets make that VERY easy!!)


I stamped a background using two of the diamond patterns and a mini shape from Art Deco Backgrounds.


Added a sentiment and the glamourous flapper gal from Putting on the Ritz.  She's embossed with clear powder. A mini feather from the Fine Feathers set fit her headpiece perfectly!  The glittery stripe is made with Sweet Blush cardstock topped with glitter.

Sharron, I hope you have the most wonderful day!  So glad I could come to the party, which continues on here...


Supplies:
Stamps:  Putting on the Ritz, Art Deco Backgrounds, and Fine Feathers, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Sweet Blush, and Raspberry Fizz cardstock
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Sugar and Dark Chocolate, A Muse Studio Berry
Other:  PTI Mat Stack 3 die, Hero Arts clear embossing powder, Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter, Circle Nestabilities, A Muse Studio Shell satin ribbon, gem

This is one strikingly gorgeous card. I love that background--now I am wondering why I ever thought I could live without that WMS set. And, the gal with that feather and rhinestone--just perfect in every way.
