happy birthday...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card for a couple of challenges:  ColourQ and PTI's Make It Monday #200 Layering Cover Plate die cut.  I have a few cover plate dies and the technique looked so fun and easy that I had to give it a try.   I have a couple of friends who have birthdays next week and so this card will be going to one of them. 


I used the circles cover plate die and cut it from SU!'s Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink.  I then layered the Pretty in Pink die cut behind the Melon Mambo creating the shadow effect.  The rest of the card was made using Oopsie Daisy and Friendly Flowers.  I die cut the flowers from Oopsie Daisy and then stamped the large outline flower from the set using Real Red.  The petals were added using Pumpkin Pie.  The reverse was done on the smaller flower.  The two were layered and a black enamel dot added.  The cover plate die cut was adhered to the card base, a strip of white cardstock stamped with the sentiment was added along with the flower.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Melon Mambo & Pretty in Pink; Stamps and dies:  PaperTrey Ink; Ink:  Stampin Up! and Memento; black enamel dot
