"Create a background for your card using wet and/or dry embossing"
This is my take on the challenge - which my Mr said was the best card I've made to date. I love it, but I'd beg to differ. though I love the preciseness of it, I am more for the artistic side of things. I take his praise highly though, as he does not dispense it out for just any old card!
The pretty flower file was a free download from SVGCuts (loads of high quality items for sale here and some terrific freebies too!) The flower file came in several pieces and I had to actually take the file into illustrator to covert it into a png which I could then trace and cut with my Silhouette.
I created the next three shapes in the Silhouette software - and I've posted the last two in a "page tab" top of my blog where you can download them for FREE. I did not provide the one for the tag because all I did for that one was "drew" a round cornered rectangle twice, enlarging one and then punching a hole for it so it turned into a tag. The Happy Birthday stamp was a small Studio G from Michaels - I use this one over and over as its just the right size.
I used a tiny bit of colored wire for the "string" for the tag - the dollar store has pretty colored wire for pennies!
I forgot to mention that I added a film of glitter over the cut out paper flower.
Off to tackle today's challenge!
