July Birthday

I don't have all of Papertrey's Year of Flowers series, but some day I will- I think I have all but 4, and recently I got the set of smaller ones. Unfortunately, that set arrived after I sent this card to the buyer- it would have been great with a little Larkspur in Versamark under the Birthday sentiment inside. Next time!

I put the Larkspur image on Stamper's Select in Memento Onyx Black, then rubbed on Plum Pudding and Lavender Moon ink with a Q-tip. The green stem was done with a Copic, just a single color, no blending. I also stamped the word 'July' from the set off to the side.

I cut the image out with a Spellbinders Label die, and added some matching rhinestones on the die cut.

I layered the image on a piece of Memory Box paper with colors that match Plum Pudding and Lavender Moon, then stamped Birthday on a Spellbinders label and set that on two layered ribbons, and wrapped it around the patterned paper. I placed all of that onto a square of Plum Pudding paper.

Lastly I cut the word 'happy' from the new Wonderful Words dies. The words are very narrow, but I used the blue glue pen with the tiny tip to anchor it down. It needed more depth, so I added just a wee bit of sparkle to the centers of the flowers; a matching butterfly finished it off- Really pretty~ and I am so glad I got out these flowers again for birthday cards this month!!

Beautiful! Love the colors and the pink butterfly. I just might make a set of birthday cards for each month using this set. Thanks for the idea!
