Birthday Card For a Friend

This card got sent to a friend who recently had a birthday, so now I can share it with you! I used a new set (Embrace Life) and new paper (Ginger Blossoms) that are just gorgeous!
I stamped the blossom twice in versamark on river rock scraps, embossed them in white, cut them out, and layered them together with a dimensional. I used my circle cutter (CM) to make the circles, layered them, and attached the flower. I stamped the branch in ruby red ink on ruby red paper, embossed the words in white, layered the strip on a guava strip, and added the brads. I cut a piece of Ginger Blossoms dsp, layered it on a river rock base, and built up the layers from there. It's hard to tell in the picture, but I filled in the top blossom with crystal effects and added a half-back pearl center.

Supplies:
stamps - Embrace Life
paper - river rock, ruby red, groovy guava, Ginger Blossoms dsp
ink - versamark, ruby red
acc - white EP, CE, vintage brads, pretties kit, dimensionals

Happy Saturday!
