Happy Birthday Flowers ...

Happy Friday Everyone!
How is May treating you so far?
Hopefully you are having as much fun as I am!!

Today's card was a very EASY one!

I had some scraps of designer paper laying on the worktable, left over from
projects created for last months show at the Country Club.
The papers were too pretty to throw away (like I throw anything away! Ugh!)
so today I decided to turn this panel into a card.

 By simply adding some highlights to the flower petals using a white gelly roll pen, I was amazed at how much life it brought to this design.  Now, I'm no artist, so I'm not sure if I have highlighted the correct side/angles or not, but it looks okay to me!  LOL

Challenges to share in:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #467 - Birthday
 DL.ART. challenge #228 - Birthday

The Poppystamps 'Musical Happy Birthday' was also laying on the worktable so that  determined this cards theme.  A few little corner embellishments using Nuvo Dandelion Yellow Crystal drops and my card is ready to go!!

Ooooh, love those gorgeous flowers! Perfect with the birthday die and the yellow Nuvo drops, but with your highlighting -- spectacular! It's so perfect I would think it's part of the original. Oh, and I doubt very seriously if I'm having as much fun as you are. Happy Mother's Day!
