Noor! and Creatables Birthday Card
We finally got some sun this afternoon, so I took a better photo of this one.
I had forgotten I had bought these flowers at a closeout store until yesterday, so I decided to make a card using them. For paper, I used a DP I got while I was away last month, some Core'dinations Pearl, and gold mirror card.
The corner pieces and the bottom layer are from Noor! Designs. The round scalloped layer is a Marianne Creatable, and the DP circle over it is Spellbinders, as is the tag on top.
All the shading and stamping were done with Memento Bamboo Leaves, and the sentiment was embossed with clear EP. The sentiment is from Becca's Kit Club, and was designed by Becca Feeken. The stamps were made by JustRite.
The layers were mounted using a combination of dimensional tape and glue dots.
When I finished the card and held the flowers against it, they looked too bright for the card, so I toned them down by spraying them with a mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang. The mist is brown with subtle green mica sparkles. The foliage is from the MS Branch Punch, and the pearls are Liquid Pearls.
