Rainbow Card Challenge ~ Happy 80th Birthday Elena Blog Hop

When you find out your team mate at Rainbow Card Challenge is having a special birthday? Why you plan a special blog hop in her honor, of course. 

Sue N  <<<< you're here
Elena (our birthday girl!)   - in case you'd like to leave her birthday greetings

Here's a photo of the card I sent her

Apparently Elena's favorite colors are burgundy and sapphire. I tried to incorporate her favorite colors onto my card. I started with a bright blue A2 card panel. I used one of the stamps from Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp set with Color Box Frost White Pigment Ink. I waited for the ink to dry. I then used some Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils to add color, to where I had stamped. For the sentiment, I used Clearly Besotted's Say What stamp set. I used Stampin' Up's Oval and Scalloped Oval punch to make the sentiment element. 

Happy Birthday Elena
