Garden Birthday Wishes

Welcome back!  The card I made this afternoon is for the challenges at Pals Paper Arts and Dynamic Duos.  Click on the links below to check out both of these great challenges, plus there is still plenty of time to play along.

I love when Dynamic Duos has the Black Tie week, and these colors, along with gold are so rich and elegant.  I have a friend at work that will be celebrating her birthday later this month and this card will be perfect for her "style".

The touch of gold really kicked up the glam factor for the card, I think.  Two sizes of Squares framelits were used to create the Gold Foil frame that went over the Very Vanilla square stamped with the sentiment from Fabulous Phrases.

The flower from the Secret Garden stamp set was stamped 3 times on Very Vanilla and then colored with Rich Razzleberry with a blender pen.  The layers were then cut out and layered with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The branches were cut with a Secret Garden framelit.

As always, your visit is so appreciated and I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  Take care and have a Happy Easter!
