Birthday Botannicals

It's a new day and I have another card to share with you! Making pretty things in the craft room is keeping my spirits up. Today was especially fun using the Botanicuts Rose Dies to make pretty aqua and teal blossoms for a birthday card. 

I used varying shades of blue card stock to make the roses, adding sponged ink in places for dimension. The leaves were die cut of white card stock blended with green inks and accented with colored pencils. Three rectangles are layered on the card base. 

 Two diagonal edges of the bottom layer were stamped with the outline images from the Sketchbook Roses image. The Nordic Frames dies created the smaller rectangles, which were mounted with foam tape for dimension. The smallest was also lightly inked. Pure Sheen Gemstones from Nuvo were added for sparkle. 
I have so appreciated your kind comments! I've loved hearing from you and each one has been such an encouragement. I can't thank you enough!
