Happy Birthday Bec!!!


Well it is my lovely friend Bec's Birthday tomorrow and it's now safe to post this because I actually gave it to her tonight.

I thought I'd show you the card I made for her, the idea actually came from the lovely and extremely talented Sarah Klass a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I've changed the colours around a tad, and for those of you who know me, well I couldn't resist.... I just HAD to add a little splash of something PINK... I honestly set out to make a card with out any Pink at all... but oh well I failed.

I used my large circle punch to get a circle and folded it in quarters to that it would be a little easier to get all of the petals where they needed to be... I thought It was pretty clever, but somebody has probably already thought of it... I was chuffed I thought of it... hahaha, then I grabbed a Pretty in Pink Button and dressed it up with Purely Pomegranate Ink and tied some Linen Thread through it before I attached it.

I hope you all like it. Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Pick a Petal, It's your Birthday
Ink:- Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate
Paper:- Kraft, Confetti White, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:- Purely Pomegranate Dble Stitched Ribbon, Paper Snips (woo hoo), Stampin' Dimensionals, Soft Subtle Buttons, Linen Thread

What a GREAT tip to use a folded circle for petal placement! I hadn't thought of that at ALL, just stuffed about for ages until I was happy with where they were! Will remember this for next time :)
