I was going through some of my older stamps sets on Friday, when I came across this pretty flower stamp from Prima. I've had it for ages and not used it much. But I like the elegant flower and thought it would work perfectly this this week's challenge. The layout is based on the sketch from the current challenge at Your Next Stamp - YNS#31 and, as it's a very feminine, girly kind of card, I'm also submitting to the current challenge at Curtain Call Inspiration - CCICJan.
I used cream lustre card, stamped the image in Versamark and heat embossed with gold sparkle powder. I cut the image out with a stitched edge die. I added colour to the flowers with pan pastel which gives a lovely soft colour. I layered the image on gold satin mirri card. I made the square panel from discontinued SU design paper - so elegant and pretty. I added a simple birthday greeting and finished with some soft blush gems. On the inside I cut a mat layer of gold satin card, and on the cream panel added the cut off portion of the circle image.
