Birthday Wishes

Welcome to my final post of the day to announce the latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week our theme is


So just keep it clean and simple!
Here is my card.

I've used a couple of challenges to get my mojo focused and used my new Altenew 'Remenber This' set for the flowers. A MB leaf die in gold provides the foliage. I stamped the flowers and embossed in clear EP before painting with a mixture of DIs in watercolour style.
After fussy cutting the blooms, I arranged them on the foliage and added a tag greeting from LOTV.
The top half of my panel was embossed using an very old EF to add a little more interest, the bottom half was then popped up on pads.

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Shery at STAMPlorations.who is offering a prize of 2 digis.
