Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

I so wish you all could see this card in person, it is so much prettier than the picture shows. 

I wanted to play with my Good Morning Magnolia set, I love this flower and it is
so fun to color.
My original thought was, of course, fall so I stamped my big flower with
black stazon ink on thick Whisper White and pulled out my
Cajun Craze ink pad to color.
I used my Aqua Painter and I colored it up and used Mossy Meadow for 
the leaves. I have to tell you I was not real happy with how it turned out but decided to
persevere and try to finish it.
I cut out the flower image with the matching die and then put it
into the Subtle Embossing folder and that is where my inspiration for what you
see here came from. I liked the look of my flower through the Embossing Folder, it toned done the color enough to make it look nicer, to me anyway.
So my answer was Vellum, I die cut a piece using the die for the flower and added it over
the colored the flower.

The base of my card is  Cajun Craze card stock, followed by a layer of Whisper White.
The next layer is Early Espresso and then two pieces of DSP from the Come To Gather pack.
I added a strip of Early Espresso card stock across the card between the two pieces of DSP. 
Next I used one of the dies from the Stitched Rectangle dies and Early Espresso card stock, I embossed this die cut piece with the Basket weave EF.

I added the Magnolia to the Espresso piece with dimensionals.
Then added that piece to the card with more dimensionals.

My sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Birthday Wishes set and is stamped
with Early Espresso ink and die cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

How pretty, Vicki! Who would have thought to color the flower with Cajun Craze?! And then to add a layer of vellum! WOW! It's gorgeous! Love the layers and beautiful DSP! Wonderful job, my friend! :)

Very pretty! The vellum makes the flower soft & surreal.

What a great way to use a color, but mute it with the use of vellum! What did you use to adhere the vellum? Thanks for sharing your tip and a stunning card!
