Classy Cards Birthday Rose

Hi!  I never seem to have enough birthday cards, especially when I need them in a pinch so it's what I make whenever I get the chance.I began by stamping the Stacy Stamps Rose Stamp with worn lipstick distress ink on white card stock.  The beautiful detail of the stamp stood so well on it's own that I left it uncolored.   It also saved time.  This was a quick card and I love when things just come together.

If you've seen my posts you know I love 3D flowers, and this card was no exception.  I cut the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings rose die with white card stock and colored the edges with more worn lipstick distress ink.  After it was shaped with Paper Shaper Molding Tools and glued, I pressed the finished flower into versamark ink and covered with a sparkly embossing powder from my stash.  Most of the glittery material blew off even though I heated from underneath but it left enough color and texture.   I then added a little yellow distress ink and glued a pearl to the center. 

I found the rose leaves left over from another project in my scrap bucket but this botanical wings die does come with leaves too that are similar.  These were colored with a combination of mowed lawn and peeled paint distress ink.   The Happy Birthday sentiment was cut from the Impression Obsession Greeting Set.  This is my go-to die set for sentiments.  It has a lot of basic words in such a pretty script font and is a perfect size for card making.
