Happy Birthday

Far too hot to be gardening today so I've been finishing off a few cards...
I cut down a large floral die cut and then collected the flower pieces and smooched them in Distress Inks and then replaced them.  I used the Loll's Splash Watercolour technique (here) to create my background, then gold embossed my sentiment before attaching my die cut flower to the corner.

I am playing along with challenges at AAA Cards CAS challenge #134 - One Corner, Back to Basics and Beyond challenge #21 - Paper Piecing, Stamplorations CAS Card challenge - using Optional Twist - Cerulean Blue and lastly Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies February challenge. Thanks for visiting, I really appreciate it -- happy card making.
