Smile it's your birthday

Good morning . I hope you are all well and are having a good week so far. As I mentioned last week it was Jude's oldest granddaughter's birthday on Friday, so today's card is one of the ones I made for her.

I used the cute Altenew Bunny Love stamp set, to stamp the two chicks. I used Versamark ink so that I could heat emboss them with white embossing powder. 

I coloured the chicks with Copic markers and then cut them out by hand, as these stamps don't have a matching die set. Gosh they were fiddly around the feet lol.

Then I inked a very soft background using Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. I placed the chicks on the background and then stamped a few flowers around them.

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp set called Happy and Smile and I used the MISTI to stamp it directly onto my background. I always get nervous at this point as I don't want to ruin my card with a badly stamped sentiment ! So I'm now grateful for the MISTI, which means if it doesn't stamp perfectly the first time, I know I can go back over it :) 

I put the panel on a green A6 card blank and then added a number 5 in the top corner from the MFT Starlight Numbers die set.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
