Birthday Greetings...

Hello my friends!
How are you doing?
I'm so happy to see you here today!

It's another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and I have one last project to share with you featuring the Lush Lilac Collection!  Actually, for this project, I've incorporated a couple of different collections!

Let's take a peek...

I was paging through the Heartfelt Love Paper Collection looking for a pretty sentiment that would work with the Lush Lilac Collection and came across these pretty birthday wishes. I decided I would cut it down to fit on the front of the card base and mat it with the same lilac patterned paper that I chose for the background mat. To add some extra elegance to the sentiment, I opted to top it with one of the decorative die cuts found in the Window Box Elements Die.

As I looked over the florals on the sentiment panel, I knew I wanted to try to duplicate the aster style flower and decided that perhaps the Enchanted Mum would be able to pull the look off if I pinched the ends on each of the petals giving them a pointed look.

Here's a little closer peek at how it turned out...

I love the bird cage die's so very elegant...and I thought it would be so pretty surrounded in a cluster of flowers. I've colored the lilacs with a hint of blue paired with a soft purple. All of the flowers have been stamped onto white card stock using a black permanent ink. They've been die cut using the coordinating dies and have been shaped using the coordinating 3D shaping molds and finished off with a hint of shaping by hand using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. To tie the elegant theme together, I opted to use some half pearls for the lilac centers as well as clustered on the top and bottom corners of the card.

All of the die cuts have been hand colored using Derwent Inktense Water Color Pencils and the Tombow Dual Brush Marker. These pencils are just beautiful to work with and blend so easily.

Of course, the icing on the cake is always the glitter on these dimensional cards!
I've opted to use the Crystal Clear glitter on the petal tips on the Enchanted Mum and have used an ultrafine transparent glitter on the preprinted images as well as the lilacs.

Well, that pretty much sums up my share for today!
I sure hope you've enjoyed!  Thanks so much for visiting!
