50 happy birthday

It took me a while to do this card - mainly because I decided to add the box of hand cut paper to it! I followed the sketch from Card Patterns, chose the colours from Annabelle Stamps blog (raspberry, olive and orange - fab colour combo!), incorporated the a 'gift' element to it by adding a little box with note papers in it for CRAFTS blog, made it for Neils sister who is turning 50 in October and so the number 50 has been added for the challenge over at Crafts & Me, and also I am submitting it for Totally Stampalicious - 1 circle, 1 square and 1 rectangle and last but not least I have made some hand made flowers for the challenge over at Creative Card Crew.

a close up of the flower - I stamped the ballerina rose leaves onto spinach card and fussy cut them.



and my little box of hand cut note papers - I love making stuff like this - I would have used post it notes but could only find them in fluro colours - now why don't they make them in more muted colours?!



materials - Bazzill dark scarlet card, AC spinach card; Lily Bee 'this & that', Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup', Crate Paper ' sweet branch' papers; Annabelle Stamps ballerina rose and party animals 1 stamps; Stazon olive green, Versa Color topaz and camellia inks; Spellbinders - petite scalloped circles large dies; Provocraft circle dies; Kaisercraft olive fozzy felt alpha stickers; 10mm olive satin ribbon; brad; white opal liquid pearls; Inkssentials glossy accents


Thanks for looking.
