Birthday Blessing Card

 I am trying to get ahead on the many winter birthdays so am doing another this month but with a different stamp set. I just love the Vintage Tea cup!
Using the Kennedy Grace Creations Vintage Tea set, I stamped with VersaMark Ink on Black smooth cardstock. I then embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. It almost looks gold but has a beautiful silver-gold color instead. It also is fine powder and embossed the tiny cursive letters perfectly!! Other tools I used were my EK Success Powder tool and Marvy Embossing Heat Tool. I then colored in the areas with my new Prismacolor pencils making sure as to sharpen each often to get into the tight and small places. I wanted a vibrant color and did a little bit of shading. Hope you enjoy the card today.
  The pattern papers matched up wonderfully and are Echo Park Party Time. Other supplies include: Doodlebug Designs trifold card, and pink cardstock
Double D Challenge Kitchen is the heart of the home: I used black to match the upper black wire basket and the pinks and yellows. I'm #133
