Winner and Happy Birthday

this is the birthday card
 I gave my friend yesterday
Now I have to say right off the bat I completely lift
this card from
I did change it slightly I used black paper and clear
embossing powder on the dies and
the sentiment is from
to make this card I started with
a sheet of Tim Holtz watercolor paper
used stormy ocean on the top left,
center crushed olive, and bottom left
ripe raspberry
the secret to this card is
I cut this leaf and top left flower
out of black card stock
inked with versa mark
and clear glitter embossing powder
next thanking the same dies I cut them
out of some white card stock
this piece is attached to
a piece of acetate
this creates a base to attach
the die cuts
attached a black mat then
to an A2 white card base
loved the design so much
made a second card with
some sequins and a bow...
Winner of the Saturday July 4th
show it off Saturday Linky Party
This is a beautiful watercolor background
for these adorable bugs.  The white die cuts
behind the bugs really makes them pop.
The embossed tag is the perfect place
for the sentiment. The inside of the card
is just as pretty.
