Floral Birthday Wishes

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Followers

Another successful day in my craft room yesterday.  While I was putting away my Christmas crafting bits and pieces I found a couple of toppers I made about 2 months ago at one of my stamping classes.  So I made them into cards.  These will be posted on my blog towards the end of the week.

My hubby and I are off out shortly to meet Rick's brother and his partner at Alderley Edge.  No idea how long we will be out but looking forward to catching up with Pete and Gina.

8 x 8 gold pearlescent base card.
First layer is Core'dinations card stock
The second layer is also Core'dinations which has been embossed using Die'sire embossilitious floral 6 x 6 folder.  I have then spritzed Cosmic Shimmer Mist in gold.  Once this has dried I matted this onto the darker green card and wrapped cream lace round and then matted onto the base card.
The leaf stem is from my stash which has been distressed with PanPastels.  I have added some peachy cream roses to the stem.  The wooden butterfly has been embossed with clear embossing powder, whilst it was molten I sprinkled Fran-tage olde gold and Cosmic Shimmer Mica powder in gold,  The dragonfly have been embossed with WOW embossing powder green sparkle.
The sentiment is from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
