Birthday Floral

Hi Everyone,

An early share for me today as I have been awake since 3am again, I have another card using one of the DSB 'Large Brush Script' sentiments. I really do love these they are so useful.

I made this card with a challenge in mind The Flower Challenge - Focus on Background Stamping after seeing Cara's lovely card on her blog.
I used one of Hobbycrafts bargain 50p single stamps to stamp the large flower, I picked up a few of the 50p stamps when I was in Hobbycraft at Christmas but I was a bit dubious if they would stamp well for that price. This is the first one I have tried and I have to say it stamped beautifully, I used 3 different Versacolor cubes unfortunately the lighter pink isn't showing up very well in the photo :(
I used a flower from an old magazine freebie set for the tiny flower which I stamped to fill in the gaps.
I matted the panel onto black card then printed the sentiment to size and cut it out using one of the Labels One Spellbinders die set, matting that onto a black label shape the next size up.
I resisted the urge to add pearls as it is one for the 'flat' box at slimming club.

I am also entering this into the DigiStamp Boutique August customer Challenge
That's all for now, Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my blog I appreciate every single one so much,

Hugs Kaz xxx

Gosh what a bargain those stamps were Karen there isn't much you can get for 50p these days especially such good quality, they look gorgeous and are the perfect background for the fabulous large sentiment

Brilliantly created.
