I've been diecutting a lot of flowers from any leftover cardstock with a variety of stampin up flower dies so there is a variety here. I likte the little tiny punches for the center of the card- I got those from Michael's eons ago for a $1 each and they make the sweetest little centers.
I stamped happy birthday on the inside from Stampin' Up Party Wishes (retired) and stamped the sentiment in the front using a variety of markers and punched it out with 1 1/2" circle punch
I added the festive DSP to cover up the holes made by the mechanism of the card.
I hope she likes the card.

I couldn't help but laugh at the sentiment.
There is actually some science to explain why small creative tasks might make people feel better. According to a new study, a little creativity each day can go a long way towards happiness and satisfaction in the bustle of daily life.http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/17439760.2016.1257049
I would suggest that you do a little stamping everyday for better mental health! Doctor's orders!

The firework is from an old OLD retired set called July Fourth. I stamped it with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder to make a more intense white against the background. Then I used alcohol makers in cheery cobbler and turquoise
I absolutely loved it. Thanks, Lynne!

I took a thick whisper white CS and watercolored the top with daffodil and the bottom with pool party and stamped the seaweeds with Memento Black. Make sure to let the part you do first dry well before doing the second part- I did the sunset sky first and then did the pool party sea.
I took a smaller second sheet of water color paper and stamped the seaweed on it . I wanted to make sure I had similar horizon lines on both sheets. I stamped the mermaid on a separate scrap sheet of whisper white, colored it in and then used clear Wink of Stella to add glimmer to her hair and the fishtail. I then put a color of pool party over the body to look like she was in water. Color in the seaweed and stamp the sentiment in Black.
Now all I need is a forward facing mermaid, Stampin' Up!

With work and home life so hectic, I don't feel like there is much time to play. I was supposed to be doing some catch-up work today but decided to give myself a break and browse splitcoast and found the challenge and thought I would try it and this is what came up. Strangely I feel more serene and happy now.
The basecard is Wisteria Wonder with a layer of pink pirouette - stamped with some stems on the bottom in old olive . Stamped the fairies and sentiment in memento tuxedo black and colored
Litle pearls in the center of the flowers - some popped with dimensionals.
