Birthday Card For My Good Friend...

Good Morning Chicks!

It's finally the weekend!  A good friend of mine is having a birthday this Sunday so I whipped up this card last night to take along with a beautiful floral arrangement.

I've had this beautiful dahlia stamp in my file for quite a while now and am so glad I finally pulled it out!  The flower was stamped in Regal Rose and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Using Copics, I added some dimension to the flower but it was done lightly so as not to overpower the flower itself.  I found a piece of pink cardstock that matched perfectly so it must  be a Stampin' Up! piece that I've had buried for a long while.  The sentiment is also Stampin' Up! and is embossed in the most gorgeous gold that you aren't able to purchase anymore.

Here's the recipe!

Dahlia - Stampendous Jumbo Dahlia Set
Sentiment - Stampin' Up!
Regal Rose - Stampin' Up!
Embossing Powder:
Clear - Hero Arts
Stampin' Up!?, Staples 110 lb. cardstock white
Butterfly:  WalMart

Thanks for looking and happy stamping to all you crafters!
