Happy Birthday Florals ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I’ve been playing my Simon Says Stamp stamp set again and here is the end result …

They are such a joy to use 
Good to post
All the yummy details

Created for me and especially for these Challenges 
Allsorts Challenge #468 Happy Birthday Allsorts!

Time Out Challenge Inspired by these words:
Friends are the charming gardeners
who make our Souls Blossom 

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and leaves then coloured them with Distress re-inkers. I die cut the sentiment from a snippet of watercoloured card. I tore some patterned paper to use as a matt underneath the stamped panel and played around with layout. I felt there was something missing so I grabbed a new stencil and added the faded dots to the card base and to the stamped and watercoloured flowers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Such a sweet card! I love the use of teal and mustard color combination and the use of dot fade layering stencil in the background looks so gorgeous! I love how you gave the card very deckled look! Thank you so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita
