Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Easy peasy card. I created a Pixie Powder background on Watercolour Card by spritzing it with water and sprinkling Scarlet Mist and Mango Blaze Pixie Powders over.

For the panel, I cut die #3 from Sue Wilson's Mirrored Striplet Die Set out of Black Card. I cut dies #2 and #3 together out of Coconut White Card. I cut die #2 out of my PP background.

I cut Sue's Lace Butterfly out of Black Card and out of my PP Background. I shaped them and glued them together at the body only.

I cut Sue's Birthday Wishes Die out of Black Card and my PP Background. I glued them together, offsetting them slightly to create a shadow.

For my background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions Tulip Twist Embossing Folder. I matted onto Black Card and then Coconut White Card.

I completed my card by adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner.

This is the one I made live on air using Mango Blaze and Purple Violet Pixie Powders -

Thanks for stopping by.
