Belated Birthday

Hello everyone! Here's a card that came together by playing around with some new edge dies from PTI.

The flower is from PTI's year of flowers carnations and is colored with Copic's. I added a bit of sparkle using the stardust pen and smearing it around in the center with my finger. Cut out using circle nestabilities and then popped up using foam tape.

The left panels are done with the new edge dies. I love how they are the perfect size for an A2 card. Sentiment is also from PTI.

Satin ribbon bow is tied with the Bow Easy and attached with a glue dot. I did use some black scrappers floss to gather the ribbon together so that it "looks" like I tied the bow on it. Make sense? Self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft finish it off.

Thanks for dropping by and I'd love to hear what you think.

Love the soft pink of your carnation - and I am going to have to remember your trick to "smear" the gel pen a bit - great effect.

Very pretty card. Good tip about scrunching ribbon with floss. I'll give that a try.
