Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I used Sue's Classic and Striped Weaving Dies with Coconut White Card and Periwinkle Card (see Sue's video here). I cut a frame using Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Noble Die Set.

I stamped the sentinent from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags Die Set and cut another die from the same set out of Periwinkle Card.

I made a flower out of Periwinkle Card following Sue's Tutorial here and here. I added Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the bud and petals then sprinkled with Iced Snow Glitter Jewels. I cut a border using Sue's Greek Border, Corner & Tag Die Set. I cut it in 2 and snipped a little more off to use as leaves.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White 8mm Pearls to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
