Happy Birthday.....

This is my latest creation. I really wanted to use some of the Sweet Shop Ribbon Originals (which I adore) for this card...but I found those colours quite tricky to work with. They are not actually 'ME' colours. I'm an Earth Elements girl at heart.

Anyway, after a lot of umming and ahhing, this is the final product...



The background card is Almost Amethyst, and has faux stitching around the edges. Then there is a Rose Red layer, then Apricot Appeal. The Apricot Appeal layer is stamped with the floral background stamp and has Certainly Celery brads in the corners. Then its another layer of the Almost Amythest and then Rose Red, followed by watercolour paper stamped with Sassy Stems and coloured with blender pen and Watercolour Wonder Crayons. The lower Rose Red layer, and the upper Almost Amythest layer are mounted on dimensionals and the card is finished with Sweet Shop Ribbon Originals. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from Favourite Teddy Bear and is stamped in Versamark then Rose Red and then clear embossed.
