Pink Tissue Flower Card

Please click here to enter Cuttin' & Stampin' Ch 14-8 All Boy. Please click here to see my Pirate Birthday Tag.

Please click here to enter One Stitch At A Time Ch202 Anything Goes. Please click here to see my Wishing you warm fuzzies card.

This is my first time making a flower using tissue paper. The pink & pink/white tissue paper is from Victoria's Secret. When you make a purchase at VS the store puts the tissue paper in the bag that they put your item(s) in. The green is a scrap piece of Christmas tissue paper.

The flower & leaves are made using Spellbinder dies.

Stamped a Hero Arts background. First time using the Design Block Flourish stamped background. I had to practice with it before getting all the design to stamp. When that happens you flip the cardstock over and try again which is what I did and on the 2nd try I got it to stamp close to all. Filled in some areas with a black marker. Stamped HA sentiment 'happy birthday' on one of the green leaves. When stamping on tissue always put some paper under it since the ink goes thru.
