Birthdays Are The Best Days

 Hi bloggers!  I started with a piece of white card nd used the Teal Marine Pixie Sparkles all over it.  Once dry, I added a white frame around it using the Postage Stamp Frames.  From the Elegant Arrangements, I cut two pots out of tan card.  I added some shading with a white pencil.  From the Beautiful Blossoms die set,  I cut several of the wide leaves for the top pot and cut different stems for the other pot.  I offset the pots into the left side of the frame.  I cut the Birthday Are The Best days sentiment out of both white and black.  I shadowed the sentiment and glued it into the right side of the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5 1/2"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. What a good idea to use pots of different plants on a card so you can use either leaves or flowers of different colours to suit the recipient.

Hi Sue and everyone a very different card today, but still beautiful. I love the little pots and floral arrangements, they could be used for so many occasions.

I hope you're ok Steph, I too love reading your comments every day.

Beautiful card - especially the colours.


Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Great post and particularly like the sentiment but as with most of your designs you could swap this out and it is a very generic yet beautiful card that could be used for many occasions.
