Floral Happy Birthday


I didn't like this card at all as I was making it. I don't know why- it just wasn't doin' it for me!!!Ever get days like that? Anyway I persevered with it and by the time it was finished I really liked it! Do you want to know what swung it? The leaves behind the flowers!!! They just seemed to pull it all together somehow! This paper is from another Papermania pack called Spring Burst. It's purple and green and a mix of florals & spots. I layered up a panel of purple floral paper onto green , adding a strip of ribbon, and then a smaller square of spotty green onto white & green. I then cut a square panel of white textured card and added a flocked sentiment to it. A layered flower and die-cut leaves were added to the bottom left-hand corner and three gems to each of the other corners. A bow was added to finish it off.
Carts used:
Happy Birthday- Wild Card *** When using the sentiments from this cart make sure that you have the Real Dial Size button ON otherwise your sentiments will be really small.
Leaves- Wild Card
Thanks for taking a look!
