First I chose the flower and stamped it with Versafine Olympia Green ink on a snippet of white card and coloured it with Coloursoft pencils and blended with Sansodor and a paper stump. I used Brilliance Pearlescent Beige to shade around the edge. I chose a snippet of rose patterned paper from an LOTV pad, Country Lady, to cut the frame, and then deciding it needed a darker edge I drew around the outside of the die onto a co-ordinating paper from the same pad and cut it out by hand. I cut and folded a 6" square ivory base card and decided where I was going to place the framed flower, and then stamped the swirls in the corners with the green ink. The Birthday greeting is cut from the same DP as the frame edge using a Britania die. I cut it three times and stuck them together in a stack and coated with Glossy Accents as I have seen done on several blogs recently. It does add a nice bit of dimension. Lastly I added a few gems in the corners.
The snippets I used will get me through the gates to the Pixie's Snippets Playground again this week, and I am also entering the Stamping Sensations Challenge - Anything Goes.
