Floral Happy Birthday | Card

Hi, friends!
I am sharing a card I made for my DT inspiration post at Mudra using few of their new stamps. Here's a look at my card :



Few close up shots :



To create this card, I took an A2 white card base and die-cut a rectangle frame to fit my card front using some Gold Glitter paper. I kept aside the frame and did not adhere it right away.
I made some watercolored stripes on my card front using a light blue shade of Distress ink. These were hand painted using a flat brush. I really loved the soft look of it.
Now, for the main focal of my card. I first stamped the sentiment for my card - I decided to go with "Happy birthday". It was stamped using some Versafine Onyx Black ink and is from the Mudra- Brushed Sentiments set. Since the font is pretty bold and it is in a brush lettered font, it creates a really striking focal.  I, then stamped and fussy-cut some flowers & leaves using the Mudra Daisy Blooms and Botanical Blooms set. I have used the Altenew Mini Inks for stamping all the flowers & leaves- Red Cosmos, Green Fields & Summer Afternoon. Adhered them using some foam tape and added the glitter frame to my card base that I had die-cut earlier. Finally added some sequins from my all time favourite, Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

Linking his card to STAMPlorations CASEplorations Challenge- CASEing Shalu's card (I was inspired by the stripes and the florals), NBUS Challenge- My Mudra Happy birthday stamp set is brand new and I finally used the Gold Glitter paper which was there in my stash for a long time, ColourQ #356, Sweet Stampin- No Designer paper and Little Red Wagon- Birthdays

 



I hope you like my card. Do leave me your comments/suggestions regarding it. I love to hear from you! :)

Have a nice day everyone!
