A Pink & Purple Bouquet for your Birthday!

Welcome back Dies R Us Fans!
Darlene here today to share a little birthday inspiration with you!

Did you know that at our Dies R Us store we not only have a HUGE VARIETY of Dies available but we also now have embossing folders and stamps!  If you haven't taken a peek lately, you really MUST stop over to our STORE!

NOTE:  If by chance any of the dies you are desiring are Out of Stock, simply click on the PUT ME ON THE WAITING LIST tab and you'll be notified by email when it arrives back in stock.

I'm sure many of you have already tried the following coloring trick but for those who have not ... give it a try ... so easy and the outcome is fabulous!

Coloring Tip Photo Tutorial:

While your white card stock is still in the die, color in your flowers using your favorite brand of ink & sponge.  Once removed from the die, you can also color in the stems using your favorite brand of markers.  I've used Tim Holtz distress inks and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I did a little fussy cutting on the second floral stem to use three of the flowers across the top of my card.  Adding the remainder of the floral stem to my 'bouquet'.  A few pearls and a cute little pink satin ribbon was all that was necessary to complete today's creation.
OH!  And I did take the liberty of a few 'swishes' from the pink sponge I used on the flowers to give a hint of color to the Happy Birthday embossed wording.

A quick reminder that we share a NEW CREATION here on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog each day Monday thru Friday!  AND, the new FALL FESTIVE challenge just began at the Dies R Us Challenge BlogPlease come join us!

Wishing you a crafty week ...
