Birthday wishes- Demure

I bought new craft items recently and could not wait to try those.
I made this simple, vertical birthday card.

I stamped and colored the image on a white card-stock. I die-cut central image area with 3" circle and die cut a clean circle frame. I again stamped and colored (just flowers) with distress inks on another card-stock, then cut those, and matched them over the flower sections from central image to create overhanging flowers. Attaching those with foam tape gave them dimension. Lastly, I painted them over with matching pearlescent colors for additional shine.

Items used:
Dies: Die-namics Stitched Circle Stax 
Stamps: Penny Black - Demure (#pennyblackinc)
Ink: Distress inks- Warn Lipstick & Fired Brick
Paint: Artist's Loft Pearlescent Watercolors
Paper: Recollection and Neenah white cardstock
Marker: Golden Gellyroll Sakura pen
