Happy BIrthday

 Last Friday Elaine posted some gorgeous cards for the 5th Birthday celebrations at Stamplorations where they're asking us to case some of the cards the design team are sharing... I just love Elaine's card (below) and have created this card using one of the Bloomtangle dies.
First I cut the die in white card and then used the die with my tan mat to achieve an embossed panel which I watercoloured with Distress Inks... the raised impression was used as a guide on where to colour.  Then I glued the die cut in place over the coloured panel and onto a white card.

To finish I stamped my sentiment and rough cut around it and the to give it a lift I rough cut around this with orange card.  I attached the sentiment with foam tape.
I am also playing along at Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Bright and Cheerful.   Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day.
