Happy Birthday

We've been having absolutely gorgeous mornings here, perfectly for some gardening - weeding actually and even some re-potting, fresh are and sunshine always makes you  feel better.... then I did find some time to make a couple of cards this weekend too.

I stamped this orchid in grey ink, watercoloured it with Distress Oxide inks and then fussy cut it out - that's because I got ink spots on the rest of the panel, somehow!!   and then thought to be a bit different and searched through patterned paper pads and selected this matching green shades but with gold embossed pattern on it.  I chose some matching green card for the card base and die cut the sentiment in shiny gold metallic card.

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