Celebrate in Style

I made this card for a friend's birthday and am entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.  I'm also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Bubble Bloom - Clarissa'
Ink: Versafine Imperial Purple 
Embossing: Stampendous clear embossing powder
Other: Gold, purple, red and turquoise nailheads
Snippets: Green paper, white silk card, oddments of Card Candi

I trimmed a the white card to a square before stamping and embossing the flower and sentiment. This was then layered onto green paper and attached to the card front.  I stamped the leaves onto another snippet of green paper and fussy cut them before attaching them to the flower. I've got a box of Card Candi oddments and managed to find enough flower Candi to fill the bubble bloom, these were attached with Glossy Accents.  I then added nailheads to match the colour of the Candi.
