Floral Birthday


This week I'm sharing  a floral birthday card and I just love these colors together, so soft and feminine.  It seems that no matter how many birthday cards I make I never have one when I need one.  A bunch of these cards could be made and just by changing the colors they will look completely different.  Here is how mine was made.


1.  Stamp Peony Spray on white paper with black ink, color with pencils and use a brush to apply blue chalk around the image. Set aside.
2.  Stamp Ornate Border on the right side of a pink card with VersaMark ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
3.  Stamp Ornate Border on a green panel with Shabby Shutters ink.
4.  Glue pieces to card as shown.
5.  Stamp sentiment from Bouquet for You Perfectly Clear™ Stamps Set with black on a white strip.  Cut the end, sponge with Shabby Shutters, add a Dot Sparkler and pop up on the card with a foam square.

You can never have too many birthday cards on hand and this is a great design to make several. It's such a beautiful peony and that color combination, too! Thank you for sharing today!
