Birthday Blessings

Good Afternoon!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Stamp TV, What's Black And White And Gold (just a touch of gold), Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes and Stamping Sensations, Anything With Flowers.

I used several stamp sets by Gina K Designs, Botanicals, Birthday Blessings and Folk Filigree all stamped in Raven Black ink.  My dies are by MFT; Cross Stitched Rectangles and Blueprints # 12.  I have also used a few butterflies from the Memory Box die set, Butterfly Exhibit.  3 small ones layered together and a larger one on the inside.
Designer Paper from my stash.  Gold Foiled Textured Paper.  Button and Twine.  Mini Adhesive Pearl.  My sentiment was stamped on a Vellum Strip in Raven Black ink, coated in Clear Embossing Powder and heated.  You know me and my smudging abilities lol

The black panel has been backed with Fun Foam to make the base nice and sturdy and to give it some oomph!  The flag banner cuts are only adhered at the top letting them curl up a bit at the bottom, which adds a bit more dimension.
Happy 4th Of July to you all.  Time to get the BBQ going!
