Birthday Blossom

I hope you're all having (going to have) a wonderful St Patrick's Day.... mine is approaching early evening, and I'm about to have a wonderful meal of corned beef, cabbage, neeps and taties, followed with currant square!

Here is a card I created today, for a birthday I have coming up this week...



It uses a beautiful border sentiment/collage image from Beccy's Place.  After printing the image, I coloured the flower with  markers  in bold colours, knowing that the cardstock and paper I had chosen for matting was a little paler. I really wanted the flower to 'pop' as I wahted it to be a CASE creation.  When it was ready to be trimmed and matted, I did so with two layers of cardstock, sandwiching a layer of pink floral paper. I added pink rhinestones to the four corners of the image layer.

I am also sharing this card in these challenges:

Love the crisp clean lines that you used on this card, not to mention how amazing the crisp clean lines make the sentiment pop! You make clean and simple cards look so easy. Thank you so much for sharing your fantabulous inspiration with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Well done Pauline, great colours and great background papers! I love how you've coloured the flower in really bright colours to lift it out of the background.
Cheers,
Beccy
