A big Happy Birthday to my baby sister!! She loves succulents so this will be right up her alley. Inspiration from Pinterest. Of course I couldn’t find the card again on Pinterest when I went back to see how they’d done it, just remembered it had a sprayed background. I wanted to see whether the pots were supposed to be underneath or above the ropes. In the end I did a combo.

Reflections on the day.

stamps: Reeds from Kaszazz; Begin Each Day BB0441-E by Verses rubber Stamps

dies: Elegant Shorebirds 99730 by Memory Box; Scribble Trio 1693 by Poppy Stamps

Sponge white card with Distress inks. Stamp reeds in black ink.

Cut out dies. The one I used for the sun is not exactly spherical, but felt I could get away with it. Sponge to match background. When I was stamping the reeds, some of the background rubber showed up, which is always a bit annoying, so I cut out a second wing for my flying bird in order to cover the ink smudge.

Glue shapes into place, then stamp wording in black. Attach finished card front onto matting of black, then folded backing card of mauve.
