I've been struggling to find time to craft this week,
but when I saw Anita's gorgeous card at MUSE, I really wanted to play along.

This was a quick make for me. I stamped my florals onto my die cut,
heat embossed them, and then used distress inks to blend a background.
I attached a 'happy' sentiment in black card and popped up the 'birthday' on foam pads.

The inspiration I took from Anita's card was from the embossing,
the pink and orange colour combo, and the added splash of black.

I'm not sure what happened with my embossing.
I used a clear embossing powder to try and get a more subtle effect,
but it came out white!!
Maybe that's just the powder I'm using. or is it the Versamark??!!

That inked background is so so gorgeous and I'm really going to have to get those MFT scalloped frames that you always use to such gorgeous effect!
