Floral birthday

Me again! I've got a card to share for 3 challenges. Firstly this weeks The Card Concept challenge. It's the first time I've joined in this challenge but I think my card is a Clean & Layered style? I could be wrong! It's also for this weeks Paper Players sketch and Simon Says Stamp which is Glitter It. I took the colours and flowers from the inspiration photo along with the woodgrain in the background, coloured the middle of the flowers for a bit more definition then added glitter to the centres. Thanks for stopping in, if my evening goes to plan I'll be back tomorrow for the Papertrey Blog Hop!


Supplies;
Dies - MFT 'Plentiful Petals' & 'Traditional Tag Stax' & Memory Box 'Heart Chain border'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Pear Pizzazz', 'Strawberry Slush' & 'Coastal Cabana' & Simon Says Stamp 'Woodgrain'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Strawberry Slush' & 'Coastal Cabana'
Sentiment - Simon Says Stamp 'Birthday Balloons'
Other - white twine, clear glitter & Copics

I just watched a tutorial on how to color die cuts...then your card pops up today! I think that is a sign I better try it myself today...beautifully designed card, the coloring really makes those flowers realistic and with all that glitter...can't get any better!

FABULOUS way to introduce the challenge colors into your project....and with beautiful shading as well! I absolutely love your design, and yes, I think that Clean & Layered is the perfect fit for your card! I love the glitter and how you nestled the sentiment panel into the flower!

Thanks for sharing your card with us at the Card Concept Challenge :)
