Birthday Cactus

Hello friends today I'm sharing a card created using one of the newly released Spellbinders Die D-lites called Succulent GardenSucculents are trending at the moment and this die is perfect for cards for every occasion. When I die-cut I normally cut a few extra which are great to have on hand for a quick card.

I have cut and embossed the succulents and popped and popped it up using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3D Foam Squares on to a Classic Oval large then  adhered to a pre-cut cardbase and patterned paper - cut/embossed using the Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics A Card Creator.   Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card and the bling is from Want2Scrap.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
