Happy Birthday (to me?!)

This week I was fortunate enough to be picked by the Craft Barn's metaphorical hat and as such had a voucher to spend on this lovely new stamp! This is my first card with it and I thought I could use it to enter a few challenges.


I stamped the corner flourish once directly on the card and a second time so I could cut out the flowers, curl the leaves and mount them for a 3D effect. I've used various inks and promarkers to colour, and finished with liquid pearls and wink of stella.

This is a closer photo so you can see the shine from the wink of stella a bit better.
The sentiment stamps are from craftwork cards.

I'd like to enter the following challenges with this card;
Less is more 3 stamps (the corner flourish, and the two words which are separate stamps)
Stamping sensations - One for the girls
Simon Says Stamp - Make it girlie
AAA cards - Anything clean and simple
Penny Black and more - Happy Birthday

  1. orange is not my favorite colour, but it's very effective on this card and i love it anyway ;-) Ornage is the color and name of the Dutch royals and as King's day is almost upon us everything turn orange in the streets, shops, peoples clothes..it's horrendous ;-) I wish they were called the Purples or something ..pinks..blue even,

  2. The gorgeous warmth of the orange really suits that fab corner stamp. Popping the flowers up on a second level is a wonderful touch.
    Thank you so much for this extra entry into the Less is More challenge this week Lou.
