Happy Birthday in the garden

Hi all!  Ann here with another birthday card, this time using the Altenew stamp set:  Botanical Garden.  I'm mad about flowers and gardening and this set has some really lovely flower designs, which I'm sure I will use again and again.

I created a top-fold card from thick white card measuring 29cm x 10.5cm and stamped on a panel of blending card 10.5cm x 14.5cm.

I seem to turn to yellow and orange colour choices lately, and this card is no exception.  I've used Copic markers after stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The colour are: Y02, Y15, Y38, YR15, YR16 and the darkest colour on the butterfly is YR07.  The leaves are:  YG06, YG17 and YG67.

 A Spellbinders curved edge die creates a pretty edge, and I have attached some pattern paper beneath my coloured panel as a contrast.  I hope you can see a little of the shimmer on the butterfly - painted on liberally with my Spectrum Noir clear shimmer pen.

I have repeated the dot effect of the border die, by adding some tiny dots of liquid pearls, trailing around the flowers.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant:  Happy Everything which was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

I hope I have shown you a little of what this beautiful stamp set can do - it is just the tip of the iceberg, actually!  

That's all from me today.  Thank you for visiting, and I hope you can find time to do a little crafting too!
