A Great Big Happy Birthday "Smooch"


This is a birthday card I made for my Mother-in-law, Jean! I am so blessed to have such wonderful, loving in-laws who treat me like a daughter, not just a daughter-in-law! I chose this Basic Grey Wisteria paper since it has her favorite colors....blues and purples, plus I wanted to try out some of the new Smooch colors!! And this watering can bouquet from the ODBD set, "Happy Birthday" is so detailed and so fun to paint!!! The image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black and painted totally with Smooch Pearlized Paints. If you've never heard of Smooch before, check out the Smooch Product Review and Tutorial I did for Our Daily Bread designs.

Today's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to use one of the GORGEOUS items from the Franz Porcelain collection.....get your drool bib ready!! I chose this gorgeous vase because of the beautiful colors and flowers. I have also used Julia's Ways to Use It challenge, to use purples on your project. Moxie Fab World has a "Plum" challenge going on until November 16th. And lastly, Alisa gave us the most awesome sketch this week over at Christian Paper Crafts, so I HAD to use it.....perfect for extra butterflies!!! Speaking of Christian Paper Crafts, we would LOVE for you to join us......what a wonderful, inspirational community there! Check out Natalie's Book of John study, Marcelle's Daily Bread devotionals, weekly paper-crafting challenges, and much more!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Come on back tomorrow morning at 8:00 EST for the ODBD Blog Hop and Scripture "Scavenger Hunt" contest!!! Have a blessed day!!!
