Brush Strokes Birthday...

Hello & Happy (Sad) Friday Everyone!
I say SAD because that means my vacation is over!
and  I'm gonna have to go back to work on Monday...

I certainly didn't feel like this week went by slow enough!
Ooh, Well... I guess I'll just share another card with you instead
of thinking about it! :)

Still using the SSS Brush Stroke Messages Stamp set
and with today's card, I'm using another
Brush Stroke Stamp set called -
Large Brush Strokes From Scrappy Moms (No longer in Business)

I really like the bright bold colors the Distress Oxides offer!

Okay so, to start with I took a 6x6 Diagonal Stripes background Stamp from MFT
and stamped it onto a piece of White 6x6 cardstock in 
Versafine Black ink - Then I used Clear Embossing powder over it
then heat set it so I could have my own black & white paper - 

I used a strip of it on this card, then I took the Large Brush
Stroke Stamp from Scrappy Moms and stamped it off to the side
of a piece of white card stock in purple, blue, green, yellow, & Orange

There was a gap in between each stamp, so I pulled out the thinnest
Brush Stroke Stamp from the SSS stamp set and filled in the
gaps with a different shade of the same color families -

Then I die cut out the Happy Birthday Circle Frame Die (MFT) 2x's in black 
cardstock and laid it over my colorful design - I placed a piece of
Fun Foam behind the card front I created, then attached it to
another White Card Base - I added some Lucy's Cards
Jewels in similar colors on my design and now it's
ready to go for another Staff member at School!

Thanks for stopping by this week!
I hope you ALL have a FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!!
