April Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Yesterday and Today Birthday

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop

If you've come here from Joyce Gough's Blog, then you are on the right track. If you've just happened upon my blog, just keep hoping until you get right back here.

My card today uses Yesterday and Today Papers and Cardmaking Stamps

The Rose and Leaves were stamped with Expresso Die Ink then sprinkled with Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder
If this is done with a juicy pad and right after stamping, the gold EP makes the ink a softer color with a little sparkle to it. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture this in the photo. 

The Happy Birthday is from the Sentiments Stamp Set by Melissa Esplin

Strips of Gold Glitter Paper adorn the top and bottom as well as punched circles which were topped with Liquid Glass

The bow was made by pulling apart the long time retired wide burlap ribbon. 

Now Hop on over to Betty's Blog and see what great artwork she has to share
