Flower Power

Can you believe it's March already. March is a very busy month. There are so many Birthdays among my family and friends. For me it means traveling from one side of Estonia to another. Good thing that our country is small and that I live almost in the middle of it. Then this blog post goes up, I'm in Saaremaa - largest island of Estonia. 
As always, on the first Sunday of the month it's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. We have simple theme for you: Flower Power. Stamping (real thing or digi) must be focal point. 

Our sponsor is BeCreative.
We are very pleased to welcome back 'be Creative!' as our sponsor this month. They have their own super range of design papers and coordinating embellishments plus so much more and you can browse their store here. News and new products are also on their Facebook where you will see some ideas for using the new products and you can also order from here.  They can also be seen regularly on Hochanda TV and have a Design Team blog here.
Here is the Prize. Design papers, pearls and gems galore!

The image I used on my card is a digital coloring page found in Internet. I printed it to the white cardstock and colored with Promarkers. I also added some Salty Ocean Distress ink around the edges.
Because this Birthday card was used on February, I added some 'snow' to it with Super Thick White Embossing Powder.

Background layer was inked with Tattered Rose Distress ink. Top part of it was stamped with Cracked Background stamp and Versamark ink. I covered ink with Opaline Embossing Powder and used heat tool to melt the powder. Then I add more Tattered Rose Distress ink on top.

Sentiment is my own. It says: "Heartfelt congratulations". Decorative edge underneath the image is die cut with Loopy Lace die out of white cardstock. I inked it with Versamark ink, added Silver Detail Embossing Powder on top and melted it with heat tool. I added one more coat of Embossing Powder for smoother and thicker result.

Left panel on the inside of the card is made same way as the pink layer on the card front. Edges of the matting layers was heat embossed with Silver Detail Embossing Powder. Flower image is also a digital coloring page from Dovers.

This was my clean and simple Flower Power Birthday card. I hope you share your project with us at  Stamping Sensation. Go check the blog for details and lots of inspiration. There are so many beautiful flower cards from Design Team.
