Happy Happy Birthday

I wanted to make a feminine birthday card incorporating some exquisite lace that my friend Linda had sent me – thanks again Linda:) So I decided to ink up the pretty Leafy Vines stamp and make a fabric flower and leaves for the card.

Happy Happy Birthday
Stamps (Hero Arts) – Leafy Vines & Birthday Messages

For some shimmer, I embossed the Leafy Vines image with enchanted gold embossing powder. Then I added Linda’s lace to the panel and embossed the sentiment in gold on peach card.

The flower was made with a shimmery fabric and some netting. I used the same type of shimmery fabric, in a darker colour, for the leaves and just added some machine stitching up the centre of them. Then to tie in with the lace, I added some pearls to the flower centre. I must go shopping for some pearls as I seem to go through loads of them in no time - it's a good excuse to go to my lss again!

I’m submitting this card into the current Hero Arts Challenge as well as Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday Challenge.

Did you make the flowers from your die-cut machine? If you did, then not sure what timezone you're in, but there are still 3 1/2 hours to join the April challenge at http://die-cut-divas.blogspot.com/2013/04/washi-birthday-challenge-for-april.html (Die Cut Divas).
