Happy Birthday Blossoms And.....

.....Sequins Are Your Friends!  (more on that later)

This card will be entered into the following Challenges; Altenew, Pink Flamingo, WOW! Embossing PowderFlowers, and Cheery Lynn, Back To Nature.

 
 
 
I used the Altenew stamp and dies sets, Beautiful Day. I stamped and die cut one flower and 2 sets of leaves, stamping the other blossoms and leaves on to my background.  I only used one pink ink and one green ink, but you can still see the slight variations (I should have let each layer dry before re-stamping--live and learn). 

 
The outline of the flowers and leaves I heat embossed in White.  The Happy Birthday die cuts are by Cheery Lynn, Happy and Birthday.  A handful of iridescent Sequins.....now speaking of sequins.....when I was masking off the background blossoms my post-it was soaked with green ink on the back side--unbeknownst to me.....blossom, top right, 2 green ink smudges.....grrr.....should have bought that sanding stone.....so I added a couple of extra sequins hoping to hide my mistake.....I figure if I give it this to anyone older than 80 I may just have a chance!  Oh and lucky me, all of my Mother's Gal Pals ARE older than 80.....it's a win/win!  lol
 
Thanks for coming by, I love it when you do.....c'mon, let's get another coffee refill!
 
Enjoy~~
