One of my very best friends had her birthday this Sunday *if you read this Happy Birthday again*.
So I made her a birthday card. I was really inspired to use turquoise because it is one of her favourite colours. So I used it in the background.
The background was made by using 2 different dylusion spray ink tones. I wanted it to have a very luxurious feeling so I stencilled some Golden Glass Bead Gel onto the background. And I let it air dry, I like the result the best when air dried.
As a focal image I chose the birthday cupcake from the Tim Holtz CMS153 Birthday Blueprints clingmount stamp set. She likes to bake so it was so obvious to choose the cupcake. I stamped the image on watercolour-paper and coloured it in with Distress Markers. As I wanted to continue the luxurious look I embellished the image with my stickles.
To finish it all I mounted the background on a card and added the focal image together with some ribbon and a little "Happy Birthday".
I lined the interior with some light cream paper that I very slightly edged with some vintage photo distress ink and on the left side of the card I added a birthday sentiment stamp. The right side I left empty to journal in some words and wishes for my friend.
Thank you for reading my post.
