Best Wishes on your Birthday

I didnt realise until I went to post the photos that my cards are all at weird angles but its too late I have already posted the card. I have used another of 'The Tons' wonderful flower stamps 'Happiest of Peonies'. I have stamped and heat embossed in gold.

Watercoloured with Zigs and lots of water to give highlights and shadow.
I then cut with this wonderful rounded corner stitch rectangle die from Gina Maria Design. Let me be clear here I do not get paid to advertise products and I have not been given any products nor asked to endorse them but when I use something I really like I am happy to share. To be able to get a set of rectangle stitched dies for $10 is a pure bargain. Go check em out.

After cutting the watercolour paper out with the stitched die I then cut the pink card stock in the same way so I could just place the watercolour back in place, a flat one layer card. I know it all looks rather red but its more a vibrant pink looks brilliant irl. Finished off with the 'best wishes' die cut and a few gold sequins (gold and pink/gold).
Love how this stamp looks, still have so many to use.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
