Mondo Magnolia Birthday Card

I was thrilled to get my hands on Ellen Hutson's Mondo Magnolia stamp and dies - I love this large flower!!!!! I made a birthday card for a co-worker featuring this gorgeous image and have some fun techniques going on here.  I'm submitting this card to the Essentials by Ellen September Pin-Sights Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Die Crazy.

Here is the inspiration Ellen provided:

And my card:

I was inspired by the pinks and greens and those gold stars! The flower is die cut from vellum, stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in gold! Gorgeous! I water colored the flower to give it color. The sentiment is also gold embossed.  The background is ink applied through a stencil on a panel.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: Essentials by Ellen Mondao Magnolia; Heidi Swapp Wide Stripe Stencil
