Happy Birthday Daughter!

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all well and thank you for popping by to view my blog, it is much appreciated. I hope you like what you see and will come back again.

I would like to give a warm welcome to my newest follower Pamellia Johnson, good to have you on board. Pamellia has a most wonderful blog of her own you can find it here

Today Thirty Three Years ago I gave birth to my beautiful Daughter Toyah and this is the card I have sent her. Does not seem like Thirty Three Years lol!!!

I was not sure what I was going to do at first so I worked backwards, I had the base 8" X 8" card, I matted that up with some card that I had pierced around the edge. I then cut some White card to fit inside the pierced card and embossed it, it was only then I decided to keep to the same design as the embossing folder. I attached the embossed card onto my card then cut another piece of card small enough to leave a wide gap to show off the embossed card, I stamped the card with the Mandala stamp using my Versamark Pad, this includes a large flower and a smaller one and heat embossed with White embossing powder. I inked all over the card with Peacock Feathers then added Forest Moss on top of the flowers and around the edge, once happy with how it looked I placed some Adhesive sheet over it and covered it with Micro beads. I attached this to the center of my card.

Using more White card I again stamped the Mandala with Versamark and heat embossed again with White embossing powder, I inked up with Peacock Feathers and Seedless Preserve, the smaller ones with Peacock Feathers and Forest Moss. I attached these to the card as seen then stamped my sentiments (Two different stamps) on a piece of White card using Forest Moss and inked round the edge with Peacock Feathers. I cut one end to look like a banner and placed the other end under the main flower, I attached this using Foam pads. I was going to add a bow but it did not look right so I left it off.
