Birthday card inspired by Sue Carrington

I still have several birthday cards to make this year and spurred on by the fabulous pieces over on the Paperartsy blog this month I made this card, inspired by Sue Carringtons post here:-

I usually work on 6" square cards but picked up a pack of 5" x 7" by mistake, but, I must say that I am quite enjoying working on this size for a change!  The background paper was made using a technique detailed by Darcy, here,  I have prepped my paper to make the bow but haven't as yet! - I sort of followed Sue's design and added some metallic glaze to a couple of the stencilled pieces and the rounded edge, I heat embossed my flower and then coloured it in using distress markers…. A stamped "happy birthday" finished it off…
