Missed Birthday

I have been known to be a little late getting a card out on time, so thank goodness for belated birthday stamp sentiments :)

I used very lightweight handmade papers on these die cuts to give it a softened look, it made gluing down the branch a bit hard but like the softness it gave to it.  Had to add a bit of bling to the flowers.

Spellbinders-- A2matting basics A die
Memory Box--  Magnificent Mum Floral blooms and Botanical Stems dies
Colorbok - Homespun collection paper
handmade papers for diecuts
Gina Marie Stamps- Birthday words sentiment stamp set
Queen & co. -- Iridescent gems

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead!  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

I was taken immediately by the pretty pink on gray. What a beautiful combo! Those skinny parts of dies are tricky with any paper, but you managed beautifully. I love the look of those handmade papers. Better late than never!

Connie, the pink is so soft and delicate! Very nice! I'm having my first coffee/stamping get-together this Thursday. Today I posted about it along with what everyone will make. I hope they enjoy it. xo

I love your color combo too and your handmade paper does soften the beautiful die cuts you used! Late or not, they will love this beauty!
