Circular Birthday

Hi!  I'm here with a card using the latest sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Jen Brum and I love her sketch!

The only thing I changed in the sketch was moving the circular element from the right hand side to the left - and that was because that's the way my edge die worked.

I used Platinum Embossing Powder and the Leaf Canopy set to cover a panel of After Midnight cardstock.  Once it was all embossed, I went back in with the solid leaf image and Versamark ink for a watermark effect.  I adhered the panel to a white top-folding card base and then die-cut another white panel for the angled piece.

The sentiment was also embossed using Platinum Embossing Powder and then die-cut with a circle die.  It and the white panel were popped up on foam tape.

And that's it!  Pretty simple!  Thanks for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.
