Happy Birthday

Hello and happy Sunday! I've been so busy with work and running/weight lifting that I've literally not had time to sit down and get crafty all week. I forced myself to get inky this morning though. Today's card was created for this week's Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge. To create my card I started by layering an embossed panel onto my white A2 card base that I had embossed using a Lifestyle Crafts decorative embossing folder. I then layered a thin decorate strip of patterned paper from the Bazzill Basics Antique Aged Papers 6x6 paper pack at the center of the card to help break up the white a bit. I then die cut and stamped the roses using the My Favorite Things MPD Rose Bouquet stamp set and coordinating dies and some beautiful inks from Altenew to coordinate with the inspiration photo. I die cut a circle using a My Favorite Things pierced edge circle die and some basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP and adhered it directly to the center of my card. I then layered the roses and leaves around the center to create a nice balanced cluster. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Stamp Shop's Just The Basics stamp set using Versamark ink and some Recollections white detailed embossing powder in snow. I popped the sentiment up off of the card using some Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares and that completed my card. I hope you like it!
