Happy Birthday!

It's Tanya's birthday today! Happy birthday, girl!
I figured a special lady like Tanya was worth getting all inky for, so I took the lead from Chris & Cheri and made a ruffled 3D flower for a cheery card for Tanya! I've been wanting to play with these DeLovely papers by Cosmo Cricket, and was thrilled to find that my Cherry Limeade Glimmer Mist is a perfect match for them!

So... I pulled out my splat mat & cut a sheet full of ruffly flowers on my Silhouette (bonus- it was a free download a couple of weeks ago! But even if you're paying for it, it's totally worth the 99 cents!). A little glimmer mist, some crumpling and shaping and gluing... and I made three pretty pink flowers! Since I was all inky anyways, I also smeared some distress Stickles (worn lipstick!) on the petals for some pearly flecks of texture. That stuff is like candy, I love it!

I'm into simple these days, but love the combo of bright colours with kraft cardstock, on which I stamped a Hero Arts background image. I stamped my sentiment on sticky-back Canvas for some extra texture & finished it off with 3 more pearls.

I hope Tanya liked the card and gets spoiled with a bunch more pretty creations!
