Penny Black and Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hello everyone and welcome to the new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More. 

I came up with this card using an NBUS die from Penny Black

1) Die cut the Penny Black Flower Frolic die from white card and colour it with Zig Clear Colour Brush Pens. When it is dry, paint over the flowers with a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.

2) Cut a panel of white card with a stitched rectangle die and blend orange and yellow distress ink on it.

3) Glue the flower to the panel and stamp the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Birthday Classics: February Stamp set in dark green ink. Stamp a couple of dragonflies around the flower.

4) Mat the panel onto some dark green paper and raise it on the base card with some fun foam, and add few enamel dots to finish it off.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by
