We've started keeping track of people's birthdays at work. So, I have taken it upon myself to make cards for everyone. I have to plan ahead so that we can get them signed by everyone (or nearly everyone) before their actual birthday, but I think I can manage. I might have to write down our birthady list to keep at home! This is for a woman who's birthday is coming up in about a week and a half.
The flower and flourish are a Sizzix die. I inked the edges of the flowers with more dusty concord ink and I inked the leaf with peeled paint Distress Ink. The leaf is acutally the middle of part of the flourish. I adhered the flourish to the card, then adhered the end of the leaf down and popped up the rest of it with some foam tape. I curled up the edges of the flowers and adhered them together, then to the card. The middle of the flower is a gem from Recollections.
