Happy Birthday in Colour

We have a super colour combination this week
at Just Us Girls from Our Host - Maria.

Aren't they a perfect colour choice to make a card
with some beautiful floral dies? The main one is from
Elizabeth Craft 's Black Eyed Susan that I got
at half price. Yay! The others are from my stock.
I cut the flowers out several times from
Tim's Oxide Ink blending in
Fossilized Amber,Spiced Marmalade
and Distress Carved Pumpkin.
I also added some shimmer from Nuvo Shimmer Powder
 in Solar Flare and the leaves and stem from Green Parade.
I then cut the Memory Box Pinpoint Double Frame
to show the background in the same colours as the flowers.
I had cut out the tiny bits to add to the centres
 but ended up using pearls instead.
Birthday sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers.
This was then popped onto white card base.
Here's a close up.
This card is flying over the sea to a very dear
and talented crafty friend and will (hopefully)
have received it before this goes live.
. I know she will see this post so had to 
make sure I posted it in plenty of time.
PS For all those Outlander Fans she has the same
birth day as our Jamie. Swooning here!
Okay back to real life!
Pop over to Our Blog to see what our Guest Christine
and my Talented Team Mates created
and come join us this week. 
Thanks for dropping in.
