FS486 - Happy Birthday


This week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper is Melanie (aka StitchesandSmudges) and I'm the hostess! Melanie's gallery has a wide variety of styles and techniques and lots of really fun cards to case! I chose this one as my inspiration:



I focused on Melanie's:
-use of negative space from a die cut
-pattern and colour under a white panel (including a frame around the white panel)
-green die cut
-script sentiment

I changed:
-butterfly to flower
-stamped background to watercoloured
-stamped sentiment rather than die cut

I used:
-Hero Arts Flower die
-Avery Elle Sentiment
-MFT Stamps balloon string die(stem) and leaf die
-Ken Oliver Colorburst powders to create my background

Your watercolor background is gorgeous. And I love the large flower negative die. Your card really pops!

The phrase 'fresh as a daisy' comes to mind, Ardyth ... so pretty with the pink dotty centre ... and the background's dreamy! Happy Birthday, mon amie! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

Love all the summerly flower cards I see at your blog recently. This die-cut version is especially pretty.
