A Birthday Celebration
This is just a quick post to let you know about the birthday celebration that is taking place for Jan Marie of Flourishes over at SCS . This is the card I made for the drawings that will be taking place throughout the day. Isn't sweet of Jan Marie to be giving away gifts for HER birthday! All images of my card are, of course, by Flourishes. These beautiful stamps are so versatile that I have actually combined images from 3 different sets to make this card and yet, they go so well together. The bird bath is actually a cake stand with an additional curve to give if depth. It is embossed with French Vanilla EP from MFT then filled with CE "water." I wanted to try to let the birds see their reflection in the water but the basin of the bird bath just wasn't big enough for it to look right. I used the Poppin' Pastels technique for the leaves on the branch and the hinges are elements that I cut from the Basic Gray Periphery PP. The sweet little fan brad is from Deja Views. So be sure to stop by the party at the Flourishes Members Company forum! It's ALWAYS A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
