Swirly Birthday Wishes

Here is Sketch #321 from CC&S, and I was inspired also by Die cuttin’ Diva’s to add flowers to my creation.   My first thought was to use the Swirly Bird stamp set from Stampin Up, because I haven’t played with it in awhile.   I found the patterned paper by Colorbok at the thrift store recently, so I wanted to give that some use as well.  I had a hard time getting balanced and cut lot’s leaves, and also bows in pink, magenta, and green before deciding on a real bow out of silver.  I took a close up so you can see I added clear iridescent embossing powder to the flowers to add more sparkle, and to submit the card to Ike’s world embossing challenge as well.

I started paper crafting in 1995 when I first tried embossing with powder, I was so excited and couldn't believe it was so easy to make something so beautiful. Creativeseconds was started as a way of selling secondhand craft supplies and cards on Ebay and Etsy. You will find creative cards, tags, and paper crafting projects here as well as craft room organizational ideas. Follow along with me and comments are welcomed and appreciated.
