Hi all. This card was for a 70th birthday, and I decided to use a snippet left over from my brayered background that I did here on this card. I added some flowers from a set by Art Journey called Nature Flowers, using Versafine Imperial Purple and WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder and I also used another stamp which is in the background called just Ripples Small, with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
To finish I added the sentiment and numbers using WOW Metallic Platinum EP.
Before I go I have a new follower to introduce called Gundi and you will find her lovely blog here, and if you haven't visited before I'm sure she would be delighted to see you.
Thank you for stopping by today and I will see you again soon.
