Birthday Card....


Well ladies, it is Monday Morning again and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  This morning I want to share my card with you that I will be entering in Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #5.  You can follow this link to see all the specifics on this challenge and maybe you would like to play along.  Joan has a wonderful shop there too and she is definitely a class act!  Everything you order ships quickly and arrives in pristine condition.  She most definitely loves what she does.  So go check it out!  Here are the guidelines for this week's challenge:

1. Use Coral/pink and Green for your colors
2. A Birthday Sentiment
3. Vintage Paper
4. Handmade or Punch flower

Last week I received from Joan, the new Graphics 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper and decided this was just calling  my name.  This card has been a little difficult for me....I started it on Friday and played a little here and a little there until I finally finished it yesterday.  I don't normally spend this kind of time on a card, but there was a lot of cutting and taping and stamping....etc. 






The fairies and rabbits on the front and inside of the card were fussy cut and then I added Crystal Lacquer to add dimension.  The Fairy on the front doesn't show up the crystal lacquer.  That has to do with my poor picture taking.  I made the flower using the Spellbinders Dahlia die.  I distressed the edges and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  Oh and did you notice.....The sentiment die cut and the stamen were edged in gold leafing pen.  All these little extras just took some time....I think that is why I'm whining that it took so long.  Everything has to dry and when you finally get all your elements finished everything comes together fairly quickly!  I always need a birthday card and this one will be going into my stash.

Supplies:
Spellbinders Dies
Graphics 45 Papers
Gina K Design Card Stock
Sentiment...Honestly cannot remember the Co.
3-D Crystal Lacquer
Glue Dots
Gold Leafing Pen
Score Tape
Ribbon (Stash)
