Happy Birthday Flower

My good friend Linda's birthday is on Valentine's Day (I think this is such a fun day to have a birthday!) and I made a card for her using one of the pretty flowers from Hero Arts' Flower Text stamp.

Happy Birthday Flower

Stamps (Hero Arts) - Flower Text & It's Your Day

Linda's favourite colour is purple so I embossed a piece of purple card for the background. Then I stamped and cut out one of the flowers from the Flower Text background and intended colouring it purple, but discovered I hadn't got one single purple marker in my ProMarker collection. Lol Linda, I hope you're not too shocked that I didn't have any purple markers, but I did buy a couple of them when I was working in Dublin the other day, so an all purple card may wing its way to you next year! Anyway I coloured the flower with pink and yellow ProMarkers and added stickles and glossy accents for some sparkle and shine.

I added a strip of patterned paper for the stem and leaves from the Flower Text background. I'm submitting this card into the Hero Arts Birthday Challenge (floral birthday) and the Die Cut Divas Girls Night Out Challenge.

Such a special card for Linda - love your idea to use this flower from the text stamp! I'd never have thought to do that! All purple or not, I know it's brightening Linda's day when she looks at it.

Hey Heather - so fun to see my card on your blog - it's a beauty! Of course, I love the PURPLE background but the shimmery pink flower with the patterned stem and sweet leaves was the highlight! Thanks again for the phone call too - I'm sure we would've nattered on for another hour if I hadn't had to run off to do Valentines!
