Not the most creative idea but I randomly white embossed 2 sentiments from Hero Arts CG275 Birthday on the white panel to create a subtle background for my flower:
I die cut the flower stem using Cricut cart Kate's ABC's from Hero Arts Celadon layering paper. Flower from Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art was brown embossed three times on solid cs and pp and layered for dimension. Banner was stamped with image from Hero Arts/Studio Calico ST508 My Happy in Ranger spiced marmalade distress ink and overstamped with one of the birthday sentiments used in the bg in SU chocolate chip ink. Finished card off with Hero Arts clear gems.
Other Materials Used: SU cs, ink and pp, My Mind's eye pp, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, Signo white pigment ink pen
I'm also going to link this up to the Simon Says Stamp's 3rd Birthday Challenge and this month's Hero Arts Birthday and Color Challenge.
TFL and for all your comments!
