It's your 'Birthday'

Hello and Welcome to today's make.
Since I still had my CAS-ual Friday's Stamps out
 I made another card for their current challenge
 asking for Heat Embossing

I went into my bits box to see what I could find
and came across the background piece I used here.
It is one I did some time ago at my girlfriend's house
where we were experimenting with shaving cream.
She had never done it before.
I know the re-inkers I used would have been
Tim's Peacock Feathers and Black Soot
 but not sure of the gold.
I heat embossed the flower from 
CAS-ual Fridays Wonderful Words
with Zing Aqua EP
adding Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the petals
(which can't be seen in the photo)
and tiny beads to the centre after I fussy cut it.
I did have another one that had coloured
petals but it landed you know where.
I cut the square peek a boo die from MFT
from white card stock and popped 
in front of the patterned paper. 
Added my heat embossed sentiment from
CAS-ual Fridays Shenanigans
and the Birthday Die from CUTplorations Birthday Word Die
cut from SU Tip Top Taupe card 

Thanks so much for coming by today.
Love to read your comments.
Till next time -

As soon as I saw this card I wondered if that background was made with shaving cream. Fabulous result and love the gorgeous flower and sentiment.Need to get the birthday die from Stamplorations, they have some nice ones for sure. Love the gold look and I need to use MFT die...never know how to as it's tiny.xx[aussie aNNie blog] ♥ ♥ ANNIE

WOW ... that shaving cream and reinker background is GORGEOUS! Love the marbled look and the colour combination. Looks fantastic with the turquoise stamped flower over top (love the tiny bead center!). The card base and birthday die-cut coloured card is just the perfect match to your marbled piece. Amazing design Ina! xx

What a luscious background, Ina ... in such gorgeous colours ... the single bloom is fabulous against it! I do love the beaded texture in the centre of the flower, it's positively touchable! Anita :)
