*** March Card Challenge at Swirlydoos***

Hi all,


Today I'm sharing a card with you!
I created this for Bec's March Card Challenge at Swirlydoos Kit Club.


The theme for this month card challenge was - Die Cutting.


So here it is:




Here are close ups of details.




I used a Creative Expressions Die called 'Fern Trio' for the leaves,
and a Spellbinders die ' Elegant Labels 4' for the intricate background  - cut twice in two different colours and using one section from each cut to get the two tone colour effect. This was backed with a pattered paper from Prima Princess collection on a card made to approx.5x7" from the Centura card.




My flowers  and brads are all from previous Swirlydoos Kits.




I love this 'Happy Birthday' script stamp, it gives a great effect used as a background stamp.
I stamped this over the pink card (middle part of the Spellbinders die) which I had dry brushed over with gesso to give a soft shabby look to the pink.
