Yesterday, I posted a Birthday Card for my 3 year old granddaughter, Brooke. Today, I made a Milestone Birthday Card for my Mom who will be turning 75. For today's Milestone Birthday Card I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set and the Large Numbers Dies. It's not everyday that you turn 75. Such an occasion calls for something special.
Here's Mom holding Baby Brooke, so the picture is about 3 years old, but captures Mom doing what she loves best-cuddling a baby. Happy Birthday, Mom!
Milestone Birthday Card Tips
I started by watercoloring my background with Tempting Turquoise Ink. I like to squirt a little re-inker on an acrylic block and wash with an Aqua Painter. Hint: Clean up as soon as you are done or you may end up with a Tempting Turquoise hand. Don't ask me how I know.
The Rose Red "75" was cut with the Large Number Dies. I made a scalloped frame for it with the Layering Squares dies.
Next, I stamped flowers and leaves in Rose Red, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzaz. Hint: Stamp off the bottom layer for a lighter shade. Then stamp the outline full strength. I fussy cut the flowers and arrange them on a snippet of crunched doily.

This week Barbara is our Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge Hostess and she chose Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzaz, Hello Honey and Rose Red. The Dessert this week was to watercolor. Hello Honey is a retired In Color, feel free to substitute a different yellow as I did. Hop on over and play along at Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge.
