30th Birthday Card in Greens

A special young lady will turn 30 soon and I used the opportunity to create a card with Atlantic Hearts Sketch #351. Her favorite color is green and this inspired my paper choices.

The greeting is actually quite sparkly.  First I inked the stamp in Versamark Ink and then Evergreen Ink.  Then I used a very old Close to My Heart Embossing Powder called "Polysparkle Tinsel" to create the sparkled image as you can see in this second picture.

      Evergreen CS
      Green Apple CS
      Julep CS
      Julep Glitter Paper
      Mix-In Zip Strip
      Birthday Greetings
      Party Balloons with Thin Cut Dies (retired)
      Evergreen Ink
      Cricut Design Space to cut numbers

This was a really fun sketch to work with.  Here is the fabulous Atlantic Hearts Sketch that inspired my card layout:
