Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by creating a Pixie Powder background. I used a piece of Watercolour Card. I spritzed with water and then sprinkled over some Spearmint and Burnt Orange Pixie Powder.

I cut one of the dies from Sue Wilson's Linear Elegance Edger Die Set into a piece of Coconut White Card 7 times. I glued it to my Pixie Powder Background using CS Glue.

I made a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Double Pierced Background Rectangle Die Set. I added it to my background using 3D Foam Tape and trimmed away the excess using scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Scribbled Frame Sentiments onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Sue's Stitched Flags and another the next size up.

I made some flowers out of my Pixie Powder Background and Coconut White Card using Sue's Striped Nasturtium Die Set. 

I cut some leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Lace Edged Leaves Die Set. I also cut Sue's Beaded Swirl Flourish and snipped it into 2 pieces.

I completed my card adding an 8mm White Pearl to the centre of my flowers and the corners of my frame. I also added a couple of Coconut White Card mats.

Thanks for stopping by.
