Birthday flowers .....

.... Hi, I'm running very late with this card - I've a birthday card to share made with three challenges in mind:


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Mixed Bunch, Raining Flowers, Sassy Salutations; CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Mum's the Word
Inks: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: SU - Bloom Punch; SU Card - Lucky Limeade; White Lustre Card; Gems




I thought of this card while I was having my massage this afternoon, but I wasn't sure I'd get home in time to make it and upload it to the CASology challenge - I made it!!!  I love these colours, thy are so bright and bold, perfect for this bright, beautiful flowers.  I stamped two of the flowers from Mixed Bunch, one in red which I used the coordinating punch to cut out, the other in yellow which I cut by hand and then layered.  I stamped the medium size flower from Raining Flowers in yellow and red, cut out the layers and created the multi-coloured flower.  I added gems to the middle of all the flowers.  I was pretty faithfully to the sketch, but decided that it didn't need a bow!  I love the font used in the birthday sentiment.  On the inside I cut a mat layer in Lucky Limeade (don't have Kiwi Kiss) and on the white card I stamped a greeting and some graphic style flowers.  This one will go into my stash - I've lots of birthdays coming up.


Kathryn really enjoyed her first massage and is keen to repeat the experience as soon as possible!!  We both had a super time and our skins are softly scented with lavender - bliss!  We followed the massage with a nice coffee for me and vanilla skake for Kathryn.  It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

That really is all for today - Jonathan will be back from his photoshoot shortly and I need to make dinner - steak and salad.  Bye for now!
