Currently at ODBD there's a color challenge. You have to use at least 3 of the colors & I used all of them. Originally I planned to make a Christmas card, but then I realized we need a birthday card. Isn't the font beautiful? It's a sentiment in the ODBD set called Iris. The flowers from ODBD Sweet William-Small were brown embossed on red cardstock & die cut with Spellbinders Blossom 3.
The leaves are a die by 4EnScrap which I cut from 2 shades of green. The little doily is by Martha Stewart & the embossing folder is Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Feather Illusion--one of my favorites. A red dew drop embellishes the flower & I finished off with small PPP Marshmallow sequins. So you ask, where's the gold? I brushed gold Shimmer Spritz on the blossoms, leaves & doily. Here's a close-up so you can get an idea of the shimmer.
My design is based on Karren's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Think the dew drop looks glossy so will also link up at SSS Monday & I'm playing just for fun at The Playground. Thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.
