Happy birthday to Nancy

My very special friend, Nancy has a birthday this weekend.  Nancy deserves a special card not only because she is my friend, but because she is the one who turned me on to stamping.   I don't know how I would be spending my time and money if it weren't for her introduction to stamping!  Here's a picture of my dear friend.  (She would kill me if she knew I was posting a picture, but she refuses to use a computer so she will never know.  Don't you tell her!)

 

My birthday card uses Lost Lagoon because Nancy loves this color and is sad it's leaving us.  Here's a picture of my card:

  

I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  

I used Lost Lagoon as my card base.  On Whisper White, I stamped the bottom and right side of my card in Pear Pizzazz with a stamp from Timeless Textures.  I stamped off three times before I stamped my card.  The upper left and top portion of my card were stamped with the filigree stamp from Timeless Textures, again stamping off three times before stamping my card.

On  a separate piece of Shimmery White Cardstock, I stamped my flower from Birthday Blooms in Stazon Black.  I then cut it out using my Brother's ScanNCut.  I watercolored the flower using my Aqua Painter. The center of the flower is painted in So Saffron.  The leaves are watercolored with Pear Pizazz and Mossy Meadow.  I glued the finished flower on my card.

I've had the sentiment for a long time.  I think it's from Verve.  I stamped it in Stazon Black so it would match the flower.  

To finish the card, I added a Lost Lagoon bow and a sprinkling of pearls.

I can't wait to see her open her card!  I think she's really going to like it.  Do you?
