Birthday wishes

Today , while watching the Grand Prix, I've made a card for the ColourQ #108 challenge where they have this photo for colour inspiration. The challenge ends at Noon so I hope I make it in time!!!

I've decided not to go with the Halloween theme, and have made a floral Birthday card instead.

Here it is

I stamped the large flower in black on peach and cream card, and then cut out the different segments before sticking them together with 3D pads for dimension. The same was done with the smaller flowers on yellow and cream card. The sentiment was stamped on cream card layered on peach card with some black ribbon behind it which was then tucked in behind the layers of black and cream card matts. The cream matt had been through the BS in an embossing folder. 

 Recipe :  Card = Basic Black, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, and white card from my stash
Stamps = Playful Petals and Verve
Tools = Big Shot and Budding Vine embossing folder
Extras = Black ribbon and 3D pads

I'm off Trick and Treating later dressed as a Witch, and Nathan is going as a skeleton!!  I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for looking at my blog today, and I'd love it if you have time to leave a comment.

I'll be back soon
