Sending birthday greetings ....

... hi all - this is another of my scheduled posts.  I'm sharing another birthday card made using the layout from the current Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL167 and colours from a previous CR84FN challenge - the bright, zingy colours from CR84FN34.

This birthday card is for Anne - another of the St Luke's Design Team.  Anne - Happy Birthday - have a super day!!   It's really weird - all our birthdays are in November/December and June!!  It's been so dull and grey, that I had to make a bright, cheerful card (that's why I went back to these lovely CR84FN colours).

I started off by stamping the single agapanthus flower randomly on the base card.  I used my nestie to cut the base mat in pale yellow pearly card, and I threaded pink and yellow ribbon through the holes - I like this effect.  The agapanthus cluster was stamped in deep pink onto plain white card, and I used the out-of-the box technique to cut it out with my circle nestie, and then attached it to the yellow mat.  I stamped the Flowerfly onto white card and painted with my aqua brush, adding some sparkle once I'd cut it out.  Before attaching the butterfly, I made some pink wire antennae!  Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto plain card and used a Fancy Tag to cut it out, added a bit colour to define the label. 

Stamps:  Stampendous - Agapanthus Bloom, Agapanthus Cluster, Flowerfly; Docrafts - Whisper Words
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette
Spellbinders:  Beaded Circles (S4-292) #4, Standard Circles Sm (S4-116) #6, Fancy Tags Two (S5-030)
Accessories:  Ribbon, card and wire from stash

That's all for now.  See you soon.
