Happy Birthday

I made this card for the current Cas-ual Fridays Challenge #62 - to use a black card base. The vase is from a new PTI set called Mega Gracious Vases. I stamped the vase in Memento London Fog Ink. The sentiment is from a PTI set called Fillable Frames Sentiments. The sentiment dies are also PTI. The flower is plastic and its from Jenni Bowlin Studios - I covered it with Gesso and then painted it with a Adirondack Raspberry Paint Dabber. Finally I used some Doodlebug Twine for the stem and a shiny silver brad for the center of the flower. Thanks for taking a look!

  13. Your card is just lovely, Donna!! That raspberry colored flower is stunning against the black...love that vase, too(just got mine but haven't used them yet:)!)!! I just had to say, our family's first dog was a Welsh Corgi...Barney(my mother always named our animals with names of their nationality:)!)Barney was a wonderful dog, and with his long, squatty body and missing tail, a constant source of conversation with strangers...Dusty is beautiful:)!!!
