Celebration Birthday Card



Well last week - nothing, this week 2nd card so far!

Its my daughters birthday in August - well in advance I here you say! (if anyone does read this). She will be home from University in a couple of weeks time and I don't really want to be making her card with her around - silly me still likes to surprise her.

I have used the 'Glorious' dress from Stamps Happen and stamped with silver pigment ink and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder onto white card, and then again onto pink card. I also stamped and embossed with silver onto some silver embossed handmade paper. I cut out the dress in the pink card and then only the skirt of the pink handmade paper and layered them over the original white dress. I also added some glitter to the flowers on the pink dress. Whew - that was long-winded!

I layered the original 'Glorious' image onto pink and then silver cardstock. The sentiment is computer generated and then matted onto pink cardstock. The pink and organza flowers are from my stash.

I kept the card quite simple so as not to detract from the image.

I am entering this card into 3 challenges -
Papertake Weekly - Shiny, Sparkly & Special
Simon Says Stamp challenge - Birthday/Celebrations challenge
Stamp Something - Birthdays

Thanks for looking,

Avril
