Birthday Card

I'm doing really well at staying ahead on my card making!!...This card is for my Daughter-in-law...

Here's a close-up of the panel:

Please excuse my photography skills...I'm still learning!!

The stamp set I used for the focal image is from Hero Arts Delicate Blossoms...I think those flowers are so pretty!!...I stamped on Kraft cardstock with Tuxedo Black Momentos ink and colored the image with Copic markers...B05 for the flowers and G21 for the stems...I stamped and colored them twice...The second set I cut out and then ran a black marker around the edges...popped them up with pop dots...and then added some Stickles to the flowers...I really like how they turned out!!

I used Spellbinders Label 13 for the focal image...the blue cardstock is from Gina K Designs...

The PP I used is from sei's Poppy collection...I used a border punch and a piece of Bazzill cardstock and made a little border...the ribbon and button are from my stash...for the birthday greeting on the right side...I adhered a small piece of mesh to the cardstock and sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the  top...I removed the mesh and revealed a lovely little background area to stamp "Happy Birthday" on...

Here is the inside of the card:

I backed the image panel with another piece of PP and stamped "Celebrate, it's Your day"...the sentiment stamps are from a CardMaker's kit club...the card is finished!!

I think my Daughter-in-law with like it!!

Have a great day!!
