Field of Birthdays

This was supposed to be a sympathy card. I really thought it would make a nice sympathy card. But I think it is too cheery...So I decided it would be better suited as a birthday card.

 I am back to outlining again. It almost adds another layer to those limited layer cards. That ribbon is part of the offerings in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!! ♥ it!
  •  Stamps: Field Flowers, Happiest Birthday Wishes
  • Paper: Pretty in Pink, Lucky Limeade, Naturals White
  • Ink: Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
  • Other: Big Shot with Adorning Accents Edgelits and Labels Framelits, Lucky Limeade 1/8" Organza ribbon, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Clear Coat Accent Ink, Frost White Shimmer Paint, sponge, Signo white gel pen, Stampin' Dimensionals

 Everything got a little layer of shimmer in some way or another. The white strip on the side was spritzed. The label and banner with shimmer painted, and the main flowers were accented. Wow, that's a lot of shimmer! Too bad it doesn't show up in the photos :(

I've gotten pretty good at getting the 2 layers of the flower lined up without really trying! I need to use this stamp set more. So, do I need to add a little bit of stem to this flower?

This is beautiful. I love the shimmer and the transition from the white gel to the pink line on the front. It's a true work of art!

Feels like spring! Lovely card! I can only imagine how much this shimmers. I love to use the shimmer but am always bummed when it doesn't show up on pictures!

Love what you did with this card. The colors, the design, everything.

So pretty! And definitely cheerful. Maybe a card you could sent to someone a few months down the road to bring them some cheer from their grief...
