Inspired By Stamping: Surprise!

Surprise!  I'm here today, along with other gals on the Inspired By Stamping design team, to wish the Inspired By Stamping store's owner, Joanna, a happy 3rd anniversary for the store and an early happy birthday!  You should have arrived her from Marzena'sblog.  If not, and you'd like to join in the fun, please start at Joanna's blog and hop along with us to wish her many happy returns!  We've all made birthday creations to share using Inspired By Stamping products.  Come and take a peek at mine!

I started this card by using some paper from the Vintage Floral paper pad to create a main panel. I adhered it to some kraft cardstock, added half a doily and some faux stitching.  I then added a few stamped tickets from the Vintage Tickets set to the top left corner.

I then stamped a frame from the Flowers Bloom set and cut it out with our Fancy Label Dies 1.  I added a sentiment from the Vintage Dress Form set and highlighted the words with a clear glitter gel pen.

Next, I created a dress form using stamps from the Vintage Dress Form stamp set.  I added it to the panel and then added a brown bow highlighted with a brad from the Vintage Floral kit.  I also added a Shabby Pink flower and a Light Yellow flower.

I then added a stamped swirl from the Vintage Dress Form set to the top and accented it with some pearls and a Light Yellow Flower to the side.  This swirl has little breaks in it that make it perfect for embellishing!

I added some more Shabby Pink and Light Yellow flowers sprinkled around the card to tie everything all together.  These flowers are so fabulous and come in many colors, too!  Pearl accents were also added to create groups of three embellishments. 

I think the end result is perfect for Joanna--I tried to copy her fabulous style when making this card and I hope she likes it!  What do you think about it?  Leave me a comment below and let me know!

Thank you for stopping by today and for hopping with all of us from Inspired By Stamping!  Your next stop is Nicole's blog.  

Happy birthday, Joanna!  Congratulations on three years of a fabulous company!  I am so grateful to be a part of your team! :)  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
