Light the candles, cue the music and get ready for a little bit of
birthday fun! It will SOON be a very special lady's birthday and so we
rallied the troops to send some birthday wishes her way a little early!
On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative
force behind Flourishes will be another year older -- what a wonderful
thing to celebrate! So, we've asked Flourishes' designers from all of
our teams to join us to help make this day super special with a......
What a blessing to be a part of the Flourishes family, and to have a small part in realizing Jan Marie's beautiful dream! Happy birthday, Jan Marie, and may you continue to see your vision for Flourishes expand and take life. God bless you!
I used stamps from the Hydrangea set for my card, coloring directly on the largest stamp with Marvy LePlume markers. I spritzed the stamp with water, then stamped on watercolor paper to get the faux watercolor look. This is one of the techniques that works for this week's Mix-Ability challenge too! I added some more color with chalk inks applied with a water brush. Mail takes so long to get from here to the States, so I kept my card front more generic. Love how these cool colors play off each other.
One extra note -- Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn't get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps! Let's change that for her birthday and flood her with some creative "love" by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here's her address so you can pop them in the mail!
I know she would love to see "in real life" what beautiful work you all do and I know it would bring a huge smile to her face! So, join us in singing her a special little birthday song! Be sure to check out all the fun and festive wishes and grab some great ideas for birthday cards along the way!
