Sweet Birthday by Carol Hintermeier

Hello Ai Fans!

Today I have two cards to wish a friend a sweet happy birthday!  I used the Cottage Circlet MTF (mini trifold) for both.  Do you ever stamp something twice to have one extra to try out colors and such on?  That's what I did, but was super happy that I was able to use the second one too!

I colored all the images with my Prismacolor Premier Pencils.  Having a sharp pencil makes it easy to color all of the little parts.  I've made a list of the colors I used at the end of this post.  Don't worry about my long list.  I wanted to do some shading, but these would look beautiful colored with fewer pencils too!

I have lots of photos for you see these cards and how they look as you open them.

Isn't this stamp just so beautiful with the details?!!

After opening the first fold:

And the inside, where you can write your greeting:
