This week the color challenge is to use silver, gold and white, with dessert being an anniversary or wedding. No call for either that type of card, but I can always use birthday cards, and there is someone special with a birthday next month.
First I embossed the Spellbinders Botanical Swirls into the pretty foil c/s. Though you cannot see it here, this c/s is white based, so when you do emboss, the white breaks through, I would rather have a solid color c/s that doesn't do this.
The flower is stamped on vellum with Versa Mark and embossed with silver ep. Then they are fussy cut. This flower is much bigger than you see, it can be cut into 3 different sizes, I used the smallest. I put a little blue ink on the back in the center, but it's barely visible here or IRL.
The flourishes are cut from the same type of foiled c/s as the gold, and cut down to fit the flowers.
Happy birthday is stamped on the silver oval and embossed with gold ep.
There's a gold vellum dragonfly just below the sentiment.

I know "She" will be glad to get this special BD card. Probably want the dies and ef that you used. I especially like the flowers. I am lazy tonight, so didn't comment on the baby cards, but that doesn't mean that they are not great cards. Just that I am a lazy mom tonight.
