Good Morning Everyone,

This is a card I made for a birthday for a lady who had lost her husband a few weeks before.  I didn't want to send her one that said Happy Birthday so this is what I made.

I stamped the flowers and leaves, which are from A Beautiful Day set from Altenew, onto snippets of white card and fussy cut them out.  I used a MFT mini scalloped die for the top part and stamped a sentiment from LOTV.  The patterned paper was an oddment in my drawer.  Sequins and a little die cut in the corner finished it off.

I would like to enter:

Stamping Sensations - Monochromatic
Allsorts - Any Goes/Monochromatic
Colour Hues - Black and white
Pixie's Snippets #399 - snippets used were all the flowers and corner die cut

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
