Birthday Lilies

Today I got to play not one, but TWO challenges!  WOOHOO!!!  This card is for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to create a celebration card - how easy is that??!! - and also for the Midnight Madness Challenge to use their sketch.  It's a bit hard to tell, but the sentiment is in the corner and says Happy Birthday.

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with black and some Material Girl DP.  Next I paper pleated some Very Vanilla and stuck it down to the side and added some black ribbon over the top.  These beautiful Lilies are from the A Year In Flowers 2 set and have been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (YR12, YR16, YR18, G24, G28).  I cut them out with Small Oval Nestabilities and sponged a little Antique Linen around them.  It was then matted with black cut with the Large Oval Nestabilities and some Tangerine Tango cut with Label 13.  I added some little black dots around the edge to kind of match the lilies and popped it up on some X-press It Foam Tape.  :)  To finish I added a black bow to the ribbon and the sentiment from Flourishes' Tag Lines set. 

Stamps - A Year In Flowers 2, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango, Black, Cosmo Cricket Material Girl DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Small and Large Circle Nestabilities, Label 13 Nestabilities, Black Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Scor Pal, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
