ATSAM & Inkspirational: Birthday

Hello, friends!  I'm here today with a birthday card for two current challenges:

(1) Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #300 - Happy Birthday!  Congratulations to ATSAM as they celebrate their 6th birthday and 300th challenge!  What an amazing accomplishment and I wish them continued success!  I was inspired by the colors in the photo inspiration for my card.

(2) Inkspirational Challenge #165: Word Prompt: Birthday

My card is a clean and simple birthday card design with a little bit of dimension.  First, I stamped the flowers and sentiment on the die cut card base.  Next, I die cut the fence and stamped a subtle wood grain pattern on it.  Once done, I mounted it on a die cut foam base to add some depth.  Once glued on the card, I hand drew the grass using a Copic marker. The butterflies are punched from glitter paper.

Supplied Used:
Stamps: Hero Arts (Native Grass, Woodgrain), WPlus9 (Strictly Sentiments 1)
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Marvy markers, Copic markers
Dies: PTI (Picket Fence), WPlus9 (Sunshine Layers), Martha Stewart (3-in-1 Butterfly)

I am always in need of birthday cards in my stash, and I am on a mission this summer to make lots of them!  This was just the push I needed to get started.

Have a great day,


  1. This is such a pretty little scene Judy! Love the way you've layered everything together!

  2. The fence adds great dimension to your darling little garden, Judy, and the Copic grass is a great final touch. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to Stamps and More.

  3. A beautiful birthday card, Judy! The little garden, the crisp picket fence, the butterflies...absolutely charming! So thrilled you shared this gem in the Inkspirational gallery!
