White Rose Birthday

Warm greetings to you from the Antipodes - I trust you feel welcome here.

The card I am sharing today is one I have enjoyed making - even if what I envisioned and what evolved are two different things.

I started with the background, sponging colours onto shiny white card, then stamping the motif over it.

The main sentiment was embossed using Green Tinsel embossing powder, and the edge of the panel was run over the green ink pad and then lightly sponged.

The greeting panel had the same treatment.

The lace had some gold edged ribbon laid threaded through it, and the wee bows slipped onto the ribbon as it came to the front of the lace.
Another two ribbons were laid diagonally across the top section of the card. 

The main panel was layered over a dark hunter green base card.

The  final addition were these three wee roses with Kindy Glitz added. The stalks were twisted around to form a feature, instead of adding leaves.  Ideal for a small feature like this.

I am linking this to:

Thank you so much for visiting, and more so for commenting :-)
May your day be blessed.

Your card is gorgeous. Your sponging and embossing are so beautiful. I can never get the embossing right it always ends up in blobs.
Thank you sweetie for always making my day with your wonderful comments they are very much appreciated. And your probably right I should still be on my vacation from coloring but I LOVE it sooooo much. But I am taking it easy but thank you for your well wishes.
