Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Sorry about the reflection on the embossing powder.

Probably impossible to see but on the background I actually spritzed through the Patchwork Quilt Mask with Violet Frost Mica Powder (from the Garden Flora Set) which I had mixed with water in the bottle that comes in the pack. I dried it with my heat tool and then stamped around the edge using the Beaded Flourish Stamp using Milled Lavender Distress Ink.

I stamped the Delightful Lily using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Amethyst Mist Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Nobel Rectangle out of light mauve card using the 2 largest dies in the set and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Beaded Flourish using Perfect Medium and embossed with Amethyst Mist Lustre. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Gold Ovals One Die within a Classic Ovals Large Die. After embossing I removed the Gold Die and inked through the Oval Die with Dusty Concord. I cut a different Nobel Rectangle out of light mauve card and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow out of White Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Violet Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
