Quick Quotes Sweet Birthday Card

Good Morning Quick Quotes readers.  I hope you are getting your 2016 off to a good start! Alicia here today with a very special birthday card I made for my niece.  She loves pearls, I think she will love this!  I used several papers from the Farmhouse collection along with some pretty pearl bling.  I wanted to keep it sweet and feminine just like my precious niece.

I love to create my own embellishments so they match perfectly.  For this card, I stamped the sentiment with Seafoam PowderPuff Chalking Ink and cut with a circle cutter.  I took the Farmhouse 105 paper and using a circle punch punched out several pieces of the circular design.


I then pieced the circle punches around my sentiment using the details of the design as a guideline to space evenly.  Finally I layered a die cut in different paper behind those pieces. After I mounted it to the card, I embellished with pearls!
