Here is my card for the inspiration.

For this card I used the Life Changing Blender Brush Set from Picket Fence Studios. To begin, I took a piece of white cardstock and blended in from centre outwards. I used Lemon Chiffon and Sunshine dye inks for the petals and Green Apple and Fern for the leaves and stem. I die cut the flower using the Dahlia Stem wafer die from a piece of white cardstock and then trimmed it down using deckled edges dies.

I dry embossed the panel using the gingham stencil. Using fun foam, I foam mounted the stem, leaves and the petals of the flower. For the base, I clear heat embossed a background using Quilted hearts background stamp directly onto the A2 sized Kraft cardbase.

For the happy birthday, I die cut sea glass cardstock using the Happy Birthday Script wafer die and stuck it using liquid adhesive.

I finished the card off with some vellum butterflies, twine bow and iridescent sequins.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!
