I am really happy with the way this card turned out. It was made for a friend’s birthday, but it turns out I sent it a whole month early!!! 🙂  (At least it won’t be late.)

The Birthday die is from CUTplorations, and has been inlaid. The word “happy” was from a freebie stamp set in a magazine.

I stamped out each of the flowers – Trendy Spring Blooms from STAMPlorations – on the cardstock, then stamped the top layer using their coordinating stamps using a darker colour and cut them out with the coordinating dies. Then I stamped the leaves and die cut them and added to the card. (Didn’t stamp them first.)

Using my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, I used the special spritzer to make dots from the distress markers, and that was it. I added it to Real Red cardstock, and it was done.

I am adding this card to the following challenges:

CUTplorations May Challenge (Inspirational Photo)

STAMPlorations May CAS Challenge – Feminine Colours

STAMPlorations Anything Goes Challenge

Double D Red White Blue Challenge
