QF Rubber - Happy Family Days - HB

ID: QF Rubber - Labels 1 - HB
You can NEVER have enough "Happy Birthday" stamps... and I'm so glad Suzanne from Quietfire Design  came up with another one for my repertoire. It's paired up with a beautiful flourished frame that fits Spellbinder's Label 1 die (5 stamps on the "Happy Family" set). Love it, Love this card, it makes me sooooo happy (pun intended) love the vibrant colors and fun-ness of it.
side view - you can see the score lines

I stamped the Flourish Frame along left and right side edges of cream cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx, embossed with clear embossing powder, colored it with Prisma colored pencils and a Lyra blender pencil. Used my Scor-it board and made vertical score lines every 1/2".

Layered my panel onto a bright red cardstock, then a side folded cream card (5"w x 7"h).
 Stamped the sentiment and Flourish Frame with the black, clear embossed, die cut with Spellbinder's Label 1 and sponged Distress Mustard Seed and then some Wild Honey around the edges. Adhered to card with 3D foam tape.
Punched out a bunch of small and medium sized Sakura blossoms (Carla Craft) from decorative paper that had the same colors. Die cut the leaves (Dee's Distinctively "Large Green Leaf") and added some Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to the green decorative paper I used to give it a more Limey color, wet with my water brush. Adhered the elements, then added matching small and medium rhinestones in the centers of the flowers.

Punched out the butterfly (EK Success layer punch) - another piece of decorative paper (my stash is very slowly dwindling...), applied glue and sprinkled with Stampendous "Crystal Snow"

I like how you used the frame as a border and turned it on it's side as a frame.
Great inspiration!
