Happy Birthday | Card

Hi, friends!
Sharing another card I made using Mudra stamps. This card took me quite some time to make, even though it looks pretty simple :) That background stamping was a bit tedious to do, but I'm happy with the results. Here's a look at my card :

The border stamp is actually a layered stamp set by Mudra. As you can make out, I have used three different stamps to create the peacock-feathers kinda pattern!

To create this card, I first took an A2 card base and die-cut a frame which was slightly smaller than my base. Then I started creating my stamped border using the Mudra Pattern Builder set. I used the bigger individual stamps  to create my border. I inked the three stamps with different shades of blue and green to get this color.
Once my background was done, I stamped, gold heat embossed, colored and fussy cut some flowers using the Mini Bunch set. These flowers and leaves were then foam mounted.
 I tried to do something new on this card, so I incorporated a braided twine in the middle and stamped my sentiment using the Raksha Bandhan Sketches set and the Brushed sentiments. Finally added some sequins to finish my card.

Linking this card to Stamping Sensations- Anything Goes, Penny Black & more- Anything goes with a stamp, Wow Embossing- Flowers (I have used gold embossing powder for the flowers & leaves), The Crafty Addicts- Anything Goes/Emboss it and House of Cards - I have used twine.

I hope you liked today's card. Looking forward to hearing your views regarding it. Thanks for dropping by!

Have a nice day everyone.
