Fantastic Birthday

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Another day spent preparing demonstrations today, hoping coming to the end of them now!

This card was made at the NEC when I did the Tonic workshop with Jo!

Step by Step

1. A4 pearlescent card scored to create A5 portrait card.
2. Matted and layered red textured card.
3. On white pearlescent card I cut out the Plush Peony down one side then placed pink card behind the cut out area before matting and layering onto the red card.
4. Down the left hand side I added a pink strip of card, cut out a number of the peonies in different sizes and arranged 3 down the pink card, also to the design on the white card.
5. To finish off I added pearl gems to the centre of each peony and the sentiment.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
