It is my beautiful niece, Sydney's birthday on Thursday and she's turning 12! I can't believe it! She is so sweet and creative and always makes us the most amazing cards.
For her card this year I used a digital stamp from Heather Ellis' Etsy store, which I colored with Prismacolor markets and cut out with a spellbinders die. For the card background I stamped a background and used clear embossing powder as a resist and then used distress ink to coordinate with the colors in the stamped image. Finally the flower is made with the CTMH Art Philosophy cart and cut at 4". I added some Stickles and a pearl to the center of the flower.
