Birthday Wishes And Sunshine

Good Morning!

Today's card will be entered in the Challenges at; Stamp TV, The Envelope PleaseStamping Sensations, Flowers and Penny Black, Love, Hearts, Flowers.

I used the Gina K Designs products; Stately Flowers 12, Massive Messages,
Heartfelt Hydrangea stamps and Royal Frame die.
Simon Says Sunshine die.
MFT Stitched Traditional Tags die.
Image stamped in Raven Black ink, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut out.
I slipped it through the frame die cut and backed it with a piece of Vellum and white card stock.  

In the first frame I left all the little negative pieces intact, 
the second one I removed them all, it is placed beneath my Tag die cut.
Large White Eyelet.

Royal Frame has been popped up using Adhesive Foam Squares.

I used a Violet envelope to decorate.  
Raven Black ink.
Sentiment hi-lighted with a Violet Copic Marker.
Washi Tape.

Melanie taught us that you can use the small butterfly
from Stately Flowers 12 set as a bit of 'lace'.
Perfect Plum ink.

Designer Paper liner.

It adds so much to your card making a matching envelope. 
Plus they're FUN to get in the mail!

Thanks for dropping by!
