Make a Happy Wish

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made using Stampendous, Sketchy Birds and another piece of the Oxide painted background paper that I made.

To make this card I started with stamping the bird and the flower separately from the set.  After coloring with Copic markers I fussy cut each piece out and set them aside. 

Earlier I had made the background paper, using a 9 x 12 watercolor paper.  I started with Oxide spray paints, then added Distressed Oxide with several stencils and finished with Versa Claire and a few background stamps.

For this card, you can see that I selected a part of the page with a doily at the top and used Pink & Main Stitched Rectangle die.

After adding a solid coordinating mat, both pieces were secured to the top fold card base.  

Next I stamped the sentiment 'Make a Happy Wish' from Mama Elephant, Sweet Greetings with Versa Claire Warm Breeze at the bottom of the card and heat embossed it.  I added several peach an aqua enamel dots randomly on the card front and finished the design with the organza ribbon and bow at the top fold.
