Birthday Wishes.....

Hiya, thought l would share a card l made recently for a very special lady on her Birthday.
I really enjoyed making this card and playing with a die that l have had for ages, but rarely used.."The Fun Flowers" die, l also wanted to use Real Red as Delys is a little partial to all things that colour.


To add a little dimension to the flower, l sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler and used my marker to add some strokes to the centre.
To create more realistic leaves, l stamped the image from French Foliage onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock using Always Artichoke, using the medium petal from the Build a Blossom Punch to cut them out and sponged the edges with Artichoke to add a little more depth.
The other products l have used are the Square Lattice embossing folder, Real Red DSP, Brights Button, Bakers Twine, Crumbcake for shading, Decorative label punch & Bring on the cake sentiment.
"Thanks so much for stopping by & for the lovely comments, l really appreciate each and every one"
All products used are Stampin-Up.
