Birthday Rose

Hello friends, it has been a busy few days for me due to many things, but all good.  I have had publication deadlines, Design Team deadlines along with an crating friend visiting from overseas and of course there is the Grandson and my world stops when he comes LOL!  Today I have a quick card to share with you with some technique in it and of course Spellbinders and bling.

The background has been embossed using an older Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folder.  I have used great card stock and once embossed using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  This has then been ponged using Imagine Memento Luxe ink in Wedding Dress and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The flower is from Anna Griffin Inc and I love the way it is already layered, fitting onto the card front so beautifully.  A stamped sentiment has been added along with a double seam binding bow and a mulberry paper rose.  The Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders has been added along the top of the card front and a strip of lace adhered and Silver Rhinestones along that.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
