Happy Birthday Mandy...Retake on a Card!

Hello
 
Where did last week/weekend go then?  But wasn't it a lovely week weatherwise?  Enjoy it while it is hear as according to the weather app on my phone we are due for some wet stuff at the end of the week!
 
Today I want to share with you a remake of a card I made some time ago HERE . Good grief that was October 2011!!
 
This time I used my latest plaything....Brushos...to make the background....
 
I used just two colours both NBUS on watercolour paper.  I sprayed my water with some white Perfect Pearls in the spritzer which gives the Brushos a lovely shimmer.   I meant to cut the top off , but I decided I liked the notepad look!
 
I stamped the Penny Black stamp with white ink and WOW white embossing powder.  Keeping the previous card in mind I added some faux stitching around the edges and some string and button. 
 
I stamped the sentiment from Paperartsy over another Snippet piece of watercolour paper which had been Brusho'd as above.
 
The base card is a Snippet left over from my Christmas Album, which I will be sharing some time soon I promise!
 
I am going to share this with the Snippets Playground as well as Penny Black who are looking for Birthday...as mentioned in the title...this is Mandy's Birthday card which she loved!!
 
Thanks for calling by and please leave me a message so I know you have been.
 
Hettie

I love both the vintage version and the updated vibrant Brusho snippets version, Sam! That sediment is SO fantastic! It's a truism that stands the test of time. Enjoy that pretty weather while it lasts and send the rain to me!! Hugs, Darnell

This newer version of your card is so much fun. There is a lot going on with it to admire.

Well now, I love the first card, but the second go around is equally beautiful! Those brusho's are so cool and make the neatest backgrounds!! Love that sentiment too. Hugs, Brenda

Both of these are gorgeous. I must try using two colours of Brusho Crystals. I always through too much Brusho and too much water lol! Karen x

I love both versions... the delicate meadow grasses of the original and the explosion of uplifting colour and life of the Brushos in the new one... Fabulous colours and so beautiful.
