Happy Birthday for Color Hues

 Hello friends.  This is my second post today as I just received my new embossing folder (Spun Glass)  from Simon Says Stamp and I wanted to play with it.   I created a card for the Color Hues Challenge using it.


I embossed the white panel with the SSS Spun Glass EF and mounted it on a pink panel cut with an MFT Blueprints 27 die, then mounted it to the white card base.  I used Spellbinders Club Blooms (Large Die of the Month Club) to cut the flower and buds from white cardstock and sponged them with Real Red ink.  The top buds are a little lighter and I made the bottom ones darker red.  The leaves and sprigs are cut from Crumb Cake (a neutral).  I stamped the sentiment from SU Art Gallery in Real Read ink and die cut with a flagged end die.  I mounted the sentiment and the flower with foam tape and glued the leaves and buds under the flower petals.  For a final touch I scattered a few clear rhinestones around and added a fancy rhinestone to the flower center.

I have to link this one to AAA Birthday Challenge #45 - Anything Birthday Goes also as I love the way it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
