Blue birthday card and a video

Hello, all! After making and posting my second video yesterday, I received some constructive criticism via a You Tube comment.  I decided to make another video to try to fix some of the problems. I've made a card similar to this one before, but not with these colours.  Here's the card I made:

And here's the video - with a voice-over for the whole thing, as requested, and not so dull and dark (thanks to the spring sunshine here today!)

Products used:
Canson 300gms Watercolour paper
Hero Arts/Basic Grey Highline Ironwork Background
Hero Arts Stamp&Cut Happy
Distress Markers in Blueprint Sketch, Merrmaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass
Blue cardstock and black cardstock
Simon Says Stamp clear sequins
Perfect Pearls mist
Mister Huey's mist in Gold
EK Success powder tool
Hero Arts white embossing powder

I'm joining in today with Sandy Allnock's Go for the Gold class - I used a gold spray like she did in Day 2 of class

I'll also be sharing this card at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, which is "Anything Goes" week
Thanks for visiting :)


  1. Beautiful card Michelle, your going really well. Keep up the good work.

  2. So very beautiful! I love the background ♥

  3. Beautiful card. Thank you for the video.

  4. LOVE how you color only a select area of the embossed image. You are a classy woman who handles criticism with regal ease!

  5. beautiful card and I enjoyed your video, I think you made it interesting yet not so deathly serious! Def. hope that you do more videos. Oh yes, I'm a blue gal, least 1/2 of my wardrobe too! So these colors were right up my alley

  6. Gorgeous card - loved the way you watercolored! Awesome job on the video too :)

  7. Such a stunning card.
    Thanks for playing along in this week's Anything Goes Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
