"Celebrate" Birthday Card

This card was made for a special friend.  This began as a Dreamweavers stencil (I have quite a collection of them) that I traced and then turned into a cut file with a shadow layer.  I love the interesting look you can get when you paper piece a stencil rather than color it!  Such fun.

The papers are of course from Paper Temptress and the yellow background was enhanced with an quatrafoil embossing folder.

Quatrafoil embossing for added texture

The center of the flowers was accented with a little gold liquid pearl and the vertical greeting was added using the SCAL software

Love the detail...

An added greeting...

It was a relatively simple card but am happy with the results.  And my friend was too!
