Contemporary Birthday

Hi and welcome to the mid-challenge post for The Flower Challenge.  This month we're looking for floral cards for a special occasion.


And here's my card.


I'm practicing with 4-colour blends with my Copics and decided to go bold and bright for this contemporary birthday card.  The images were stamped, masked and colored and then I trimmed the panel down so I could fit some patterned paper and gold foil down the left hand side.

The sentiment is popped up on foam tape and the die-cut is from Stamplorations.



Thanks for visiting.  There are more floral beauties on the challenge blog, so please check them out and have a go yourself.

Products used:

Stamps:  Spring Flowers, It's Your Birthday (SSS)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid, Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Black, X-Press It, Gold Foil (DCWV), Dots & Stripes Neutrals (MFT)
Dies:  Birthday (Stamplorations)
Accessories:  Copics, White EP

Cheers 
Karren

Four color blends? Be still my heart, Karren...your Copic coloring slays me! Beautiful color palette, and flawless blending...you really made these flowers pop! I also love your choice of flowers and sentiment and the modern B&W stripes and gold trim is just perfect!
