Floral Birthday

Hello everyone,
The sky was grey and it was rainy today, best weather for crafting indoor!  :D

I make a floral birthday card to play along the Altenew 2018 Year in Review Challenge.  I am inspired by January's project.  I love the bright happy colors and the composition of the layout.  

This is the inspiration project:

And here's my take.

I copied the layout quite closely, but I went with softer colors and used the Layered Floral Element Dies to die cut the flowers and watercolored.  I also splattered some watercolors and glimmer gold ink for the background.  The sentiment is white heat embossed.

I photographed how I 'dry fit' the pieces and the process of creating this card.

Thanks for visiting.  I wish you a sweet day!
