Happy Birthday

This is another post that I already had on my blog drafts, hopefully I'll be feeling better enough to make a new card soon ...

This is a card I have made for one of my very good friend's. She loves pink so I thought this PTI Raspberry Fizz would work well for her. I got the inspiration from the layout from Maile Belles {thank you for the inspiration}. First I have cut a circle out of white CS using a Nestabilities die and run it through my Cuttlebug using the SU! Manhattan Flower embossing folder {available from the lovely Jules} and adhered it to a white card blank. I have then cut a strip of PTI Raspberry Fizz and stamped it with one of the blooms from the PTI Beautiful Blooms stamp set using Memento Rose Bud ink. I have cut out a banner using the PTI Dounble Ended Banner die and adhered it to the card cutting off one end. This has then been stamped with the Elzybells greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I have cut a butterfly from the PTI Love Lives Here die set out of felt and sprayed with Glimmer Mist {you can't really see it in the photo but there is a lovely shimmer to it in real life}. Bubblegum Doodlebug buttons have been added with floss and the bigger one has two tiny tags on it punched from the SU! Tiny Tag punch and the heart stamped from the PTI Sign Language set. Papermania Adhesive gems added to the heart tag and the inside of the butterfly to finish. WOW! That was a lot of products used for such a simple looking card!!

Thanks to mandi, I am entering this into  the current Less Is More challenge of adding buttons or ribbon to your card.
