Hello everyone,

It's an age since I added a card the Monday  Challenge at Stamp TV   so I decided I should get into it again.

I'm also going to enter this card onto the Seize The Birthday challenge for  "Änything Goes Birthday". It a belated birthday card .I'm hoping it will be the first of many ( birthday cards that is- not belated...).

This is a new metal hydranga die (for me) and I've coloured the pieces with distress ink. 

It looked slightly bare and needed somthing extra I though, so, I cut the front panel back a little and placed some gold washi tape on the inside edge of the card -it is visible when the card is closed. 
I ran a gold pen around the edge to finish it all off!

The die is from Impression Obsession. The sentiment is Hero Arts( What's Up).

The card is a belated offering for a friend who has just turned 70!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Beautiful coloring on that wonderful bloom Julie - I like the gold rim and the pretty washi tape peeking out on the edge!

  2. Very pretty card! That little bit of gold around the edge is the perfect touch, and your hydrangea die cut is stunning! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!

  3. Beautiful flower, Julie, and I like the added depth with the washi tape...thank you for sharing it with us at Seize the Birthday!
