Birthday Wishes

Happy to see you visiting today and hope that all is well at your place as we all try to deal with the changes in our lives at the moment.

Of course I have another floral card today - I love them so much - they always bring a smile to my face with their variety and wonderful shapes and colours.
I used part of a very large stamp, masking off some areas before fitting it to the Misti, then adding the different colours of ink with repeated stamping... finally when I was happy with the colours I lightly spritzed it with water so the colour blended slightly.  Next I fussy cut out the image.  I found some patterned paper in my stash with a pale pink strip to match the pink in the flower... I love that as part of the print it had a lacy doiley.  From the scraps I die cut a stitched rectangle and stamped on my sentiment.  To finish I added a white card frame and foam sheet to attached to a white card and used foam tape to attach the flower and sentiment.

I am playing along with four challenges today --   AAA Birthday #11 challenge - Flowers   ....   Yes, Virginia's Show & Share March challenge    ....   Penny Black Saturday challenge PBSC March - Think Flowers   ...  AND   ....  Double 'D' challenge - Spring.

Thanks for stopping by my blog  --   have a Happy Day and stay safe
