A Birthday Card

Hi, I thought I would show you a Birthday Card I made last week( it has arrived so can show you now!) I used chipboard flowers and a large Tag too from The Artistic Stamper.
I used Crafty Individuals papers to cover the Tag. They are the smoothest papers I have used in years, and work perfectly with the chipboard.
I painted pearlescent powder paints on the flowers, and then stamped over them with one of The Artistic Stamper Calligraphy Mats. These are unmounted dies of various scripts that have been in the catalogue for many years and are some of the most versatile stamps I know.
I was quite pleased with the effect and I know the recipient liked it (I think :))
