This card is created for this week's challenge AT JOAN's GARDENS where the challenge is to use plaid paper for a background, an embossing folder, and something dimensional and to create a birthday card for a friend.
For this card I used a piece of plaid paper by Colorbok matted with coordinating burgundy cardstock. The dimensional square of pale yellow plain and decorator paper is topped with a large fiber-paper flower, and centered with a flower I made from the PunchBunch petals punch available at Joans Gardens. The center of the flower also from a punch, and that is topped with stamens that I got from Wild Orchid crafts, and a touch of Platinum Stickles. The Happy Birthday sentiment stamp is from Just Rite Crafts Large Fancy Stampset CR 03815 available at Joan's Gardens. The Corner punch squiggle is a Fiskars Lace corner punch (altered). The burgundy mat for the Happy Birthday sentiment area is embossed with Textured Impressions (Sizzix --SU) Chevron embossing folder and the pearls are colored with markers to match the large paper flower.
