Birthday Greetings

I'm hanging my head in shame for how much I have neglected my blog!!

I will try to do better!

So, I thought I would share the card that I made for my dear friend, Wendy's birthday last week.

I started off my creating a card blank using Delightful Dijon Stampin' Up card stock.   I then stamped a flower around the background using the same ink. 

Next I added matching papers.

The flower (which is divine) is from the You've Got This stamp set in the new Stampin' Up catalogue.  I stamped this in Archival ink and then used a water brush and inks in Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder and a hint of Delightful Dijon to colour the image in.

This was then die cut and layered onto card stock before layering onto the card blank. 

I tied vanilla seam binding around the card and tied it into a bow.  I added a matching resin flower and a pearl to the centre of the flower. 

To finish I added hat pins and pearls.

Next I wanted to create a matching gift card envelope.

I hope you like my card and envelope..... I know that the recipient did!
Thanks for looking....
