Cornish Heritage Farms CHF04 - Happy Birthday Card or Tag

So here I am back with another Card Challenge for Cornish Heritage Farms. Our host for this week's challenge is Lisa Silver and she asks us to make a Birthday card or Tag. So here is my Birthday Card.
I started off using bronze metallic paper as my base which a 5"x 7" finished card size.  Then I used Bo Bunny Collection called 'Forever Fall' for the rest of my papers. I stamped 3 times the Shady Daisy Backgrounder stamp (SL-3164 WUM) onto shimmery white paper using Black Memento Ink and colour 2 images using Copic markers. Then I went over the 2 images using Prismacolor pencils to add more contrast. I also stamped the image onto bond paper because I wanted to make a cheap mask so when I air brush my background paper using my Copic markers I didn't colour the flower. I cut out 2 coloured flowers using scissors. I used foam tape on the first flower and applied it to the background flower. On top of this I applied the 2nd flower which I used pop up dots to add depth. I added some gold/brown satin ribbon by May Arts. I added some chipboard as shown. I took a sticker from the collection and stamped 'Happy Birthday' using platinum pigment ink and embossed using black embossing powder. I laid the sticker down on some brown paper and trimmed around it so it look like a mat. So hop along and check out the rest of the Design Team members challenges.

So, let's get this party started, shall we?? If you've arrived here from RACHELLE then you are on the right track!! If you're just arriving, please be sure to start at the very beginning, Denise's blog, so you don't miss one thing!! Our challenge this week is to follow this card sketch, designed by our very own - Karen!!! Easy peezy!!



And here's my creation using Digi Darla's 'Duel Wild Rose!!

 I started off using black metallic paper for the base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used newest collection called "Beautiful Moments" by Carta Bella. I cut 1 strip using 'Happy Thoughts' paper and rounded the corners. I used the other side and cut it smaller then ran it thru a Stampin'up Embossing folder called 'Fancy Fan'. I printed the roses using shimmery white paper and coloured the roses using Prismacolor pencils. Then I cut it out using Spellbinders 'Lacey Ovals' and then us out another frame using Raspberry Ripple using the largest and second largest of the same die. I laid this on top of another Spellbinders die called 'Floral Oval' using Regal Rose paper. I added 3 pink candi brads in the right corner. I added Rose Red ribbon, Rose ribbon by Stampin'Up and pleated satin ribbon by May Arts on the bottom. Then I added 3 ribbons using Regal Rose, Rose and Very Vanilla by Stampin'Up.
