Happy Birthday in Fall Colors

 Hello friends, thanks for stopping by.  I have a birthday card to share using new stamps, dies, stencil, and fall colors for a few challenges.

This is my first time using the Altenew Cone Flower stamps and dies.  It is a layered stamp but I chose to stamp the flower and color it with SU Bleends:  Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede and Old Olive.  After die cutting the image I did a little fussy cutting on the white border so it wouldn't show on the Altenew Sphere Stencil.  I used Frayed Burlap DOI on the stencil and off set it on the edge.  After sponging I embossed the panel with SU Tasteful Textile EF.  The sentiment is from SU Sweet As A Peach, stamped in Soft Suede ink.  I cut the slanted ends and mounted both the sentiment and flower with foam tape.  

Time Out Challenges - I chose flowers and joy from the words

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
