This is a card for our granddaugher but it also fits the theme for the Created Byhand Challenge which is You Say it's your Birthday. The flower is made from Quietfire's new Flourishing Inside Heart stamp (the largest one). I stamped it 4 times each on white cardstock with Adirondack dye ink sail boat blue and purple twilight and cut them out leaving a small border of white. For the background it's the Tim Holtz wrinkle free distress technique using the same inks and spritzing with a mix of gold Perfect Pearls and water. Happy Birthday (also a Quietfire Image) is stamped on white cardstock with purple twilight, torn out, edged with purple twilight and then also with gold Paint Dabber. The background is also edged with purple twilight and the gold Paint Dabber. After determining where I wanted the flower, I put a large glue dot where the center would be and then placed the points of my "petals" on the glue dot. I added a gold button (shank cut off) in the center and a row of gold sticky back gems around it. Gems also across corners and one near the sentiment.
