Little Birdie Crafts Birthday Wishes and Flowers

Hello friends welcome and thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Australia Day to all of my Australian friends - I hope you celebrated this amazing country in some form or other.  We had a quiet day because of the extreme temperatures but had a family dinner, which is always wonderful.  
I have been making the most of being inside and have enjoyed playing around with some of the Little Birdie Crafts products and have to say they are a little bit addictive!!

The patterned paper from my stash has been cut into squares and layered onto recycled cardboard; each of the squares has been paper pierced by hand. and cut/embossed using the Spellbinders A-2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched Dies and lightly sanded.  The card front has been adhered to a pre-cut card base using Adhesive Sheets 4 x6.

The flowers from the Little Birdie Crafts Clear Stamps - Floral Greetings have been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, next they have been coloured using Chameleon Pens.  The flowers are fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto a panel that has been stenciled using the Little Birdie Crafts Stencil - Dots in brown and gold inks and cut/embossed using the third largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and popped up onto the card front using Scrapboook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The CHIPBOARD ON YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES has been coloured in an Ombre style using Chameleon Pens and coated using Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer.  A length of lace from my stash has been glued along the lower portion of the card front and small Lecreme pearls added along the Lacy pattern.

 I have finished off using a trimmed section of  Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse in Lecreme and adhering it coming out from the flower.
