Floral Birthday

Welcome

This is the result of finally colouring a couple of  images I stamped when visiting a friend a couple of years ago!  I think they are from Spellbinders, but cannot find the image on their site. 
I used my Polychromo pencils, and there are multiple layers of colour in it, but I was happy with the result.


After colouring the images, I fussy cut them, and placed them opposite each other on the design paper, and covered the join with some coloured burlap ribbon (from a $2 shop)...  


I stamped and embossed the greeting, trimmed the snippet into a the tag, rounded the corners, and sponged the edges with  some soft pink ink.


There were some dots surrounding the image that got trimmed off, so I mimicked them with gold dimensional glue, and also dotted the glue over the remaining ones on the image.

I don't recall seeing this stamp before but it is so pretty. I love the simplicity of the design for the flowers and I absolutely adore the way you have added the ribbon between the two halves.
