Birthday Wishes

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by - Christmas is only 4 sleeps away for us in the Southern Hemisphere - the shopping centres are so full and I feel for those who have yet to start their shopping - not a fan of last minute at any time!  In the meantime I have a quick birthday card to share with you - you can never have too many on hand!

I have used the Spellbinders Framed Petite Labels embossing folder as the card front - it has such pretty details and lends itself to be combined with any smaller die.  The embossing folder has been sponged using Imagine Memento Luxe ink in Wedding Dress and a sponge dauber - I love how this both softens and highlights the embossed pattern.  The corners have been rounded, next this layer has been popped up onto a slightly larger white pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The Die D-Lites Swirl Delight Etched Dies has been cut/embossed using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine. white card stock and adhered to the card front using double sided tape. A die cut birthday sentiment has been lined using green card stock and popped up into the Swirl Delight using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

A double bow has been created and glued under the sentiment.  A small white flower along with a mauve jewelled brad have been glued to the knot of the bow.  Green sequins have been randomly glued to the card front.  

This card is linked to the following challenges:
