Birthday Wishes

I created this birthday card using Tilda With Gift from Magnolia Stamps.

I started with a dark green card base. I added a piece of green card stock cut just a little smaller than the base.  I cut a piece of white card stock just a little smaller than the green piece.  I inked the edges with a pastel pink chalk ink pad.  I embossed a strip of green card stock and backed it in dark green card stock. I punched one edge of the dark green using an eyelet lace border punch. I added a piece of green gingham ribbon across the middle of the card.  The image is colored using crayola and prisma colored pencils and then cut out in an oval. I inked around the edges just like I did the white background piece and then backed it in dark green card stock and cut around it using scalloped scissors.  The sentiment is stamped on white card stock and I inked the edges and backed it in dark green card stock.  I added 2 pink paper flowers and leaves to the bottom corner of the image and added a white pearl to the center of each one. I also added white pearls on the other bottom corner of the image, the upper corner of the card and to the sentiment. I also added a white pearl heart to the sentiment. Then added a bow made out of the gingham ribbon to teh side of the image to finish off the card.
