Happy Birthday Rita!
Happy Birthday (a little late....) to Rita! I CASed this card from one made by Beth Ann Wilson - it's even prettier in person. There's a lot going on in this card. The striped background is made from retired DSP. The oval and frame is made from the Frame, Oval Scallop Die twice, once in Whisper White, once in Bashful Blue so the center is white and the frame is blue (so now I have an extra blue center and white frame), then the frame is run through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. The leaves are a variety of greens, and they, plus the Marina Mist bird are punched from the Two Step XL Bird punch, then the bird is placed in the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder and positioned just right to make an eye! More Mustard ink is used on the flowers from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set that are cut out and popped up with dimensionals. More Mustard brads are in the center of the Filigree Brads that make the center of the flowers. Birthday Wishes from 'Bring on the Cake' are stamped using Black Stazon. Love it!
