Flower Birthday Card

Hello! Just popping in to share a card that I made for a friend's birthday. To have a starting point, I used one of the sketches for this month's Hero Arts Challenge. Here is the card:




I stamped the flowers onto thin white cardboard, using distress inks spritzed with water. Then I die-cut them to adhere them to the card with foam tape. This is my first and only Hero Arts set with the coordinating Sizzix dies and all I can say is that these are fabulous!!! It is so easy to perfectly die-cut the stamped image. I want more! On the background I stamped the Envelope Pattern, did some slight inking on the edges and used some glimmer mist to add these droplets. Sorry that this photo isn't the best, it is really gloomy here and I haven't ordered lamps for my photo tent yet. Here is a closer look at the flowers:






I hope your day is sunny, warm and beautiful! Thank you for visiting!


Hugs and Love,
Vanessa

Very pretty card Vanessa, was thinking of getting some of those die cut sets myself but wasn't sure what they were like, thanks for the advice.
