HAPPY BIRTHDAY... on a drizzly day in May

This really is a very pretty card, one we have made during the workshops.  I love the simplicity of the colours, they work so well together!  The stamp I have used is one from Sarah Kay, the butterflies are the little embosslit dies beautiful wings, the corner stamp is from clarity.  The little ferns have been punched out using pearlised paper.
To make the flowers you need three scallop circles, I used the stampin up punch to punch them out of  navy cardstock. Then pass them through a crimper (also available from stampin up), this is to break the fibres of the cardstock.  Then carefully flick the edge of the scallop and tease each scallop apart so that you have six shapes.  Place three together and attach with a brad in the centre.  Then dampen slightly with a water spritzer and screw gently in one hand.  By screwing up the card and rearranging the petals you can get the desired effect of real flowers.
I hope this doesn't sound too complex and that you will have a go as the results really add something to this card!
Happy crafting.....and thank you for stopping by.
