Birthday Posies

Birthday Wishes shared today by Mindy, who created this wreath which is suitable for birthdays, get well, and thinking of you. 

The card was begun by selecting three colors of card stock that complimented the colors I chose for my flowers.  The flower used is the single flower from the Floral Basket Clear Stamps by JustRight Stamps. On a sheet of eggshell card stock, I drew a circle using a circular die as a template.  I stamped the flower stamp around the circle alternating the direction of the stamp to give it a different but balanced appearance. The flowers were colored with Copic markers and left to dry. When the Copics were dry, I highlighted each leaf and flower with a Gelly Roll Stardust Clear Pen by Sakura. I also stamped five extra flowers and colored them the same as the wreath, then fussy cut around each one.

I assembled my three layers of card stock for the background. The layer where the wreath was placed is embossed with the Vintage Flowers Folder by Crafts Too!  I adhered the wreath with Joy! Foam Pads Large, and cut a few of the pads in quarters for the smaller single flowers.  They were placed around the wreath to fill in empty spaces. 

The sentiments were from the Floral Basket set and the Happy Birthday stamp from Art Impressions. The stamps were embossed with embossing powder on Heavyweight Vellum then attached with brads. After all the layers were attached, I adhered the card front to an eggshell card base.
