LOC Birthday Bouquet

I am popping in to show you a card using the Layers of Color Gifts of Love art stamp set, illustrated by NinaBrackett.  Incase you haven't heard Layers of Color is sponsoring the If the Shoe Fits Challenge this week and the theme is green - so I had to link this card!

I have stamped the image and lightly coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen

Cutting the image out using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the Lacey Circles Nestibilitlie, Sponging around the edges with Ranger Peeled Paint Distressing Ink before removing the image from the Die.

The sentiment is part of the Gifts of Love art stamp set - you have a few to choose from - I have used a Corner Rounder on the edges.

My bow had been tied with the BowEasy - the more I use it the more I love it!  Half pearls add the finishing touch.

This card is for the following challenges:
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Happy Birthday

Anything Goes Challenge - Happy Birthday/Celebration

Crazy Amigo Challenge - Anything goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday Card
