A Neat & Tangled Birthday Dash...

8 Minutes and 49 seconds later...

Joining in the celebrations at 10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Extravaganza - as I had quite a few extra flowers from creating this card yesterday, I thought I'd have a go at creating a second card using the left overs! Also joining in the fun at Neat & Tangled Birthday celebrations, where Danielle challenged us to create a Neat & Tangled birthday card with non-birthday sets, so I've combined the Little Tangles and Fresh Blooms sets.

My first 10 Minute Craft Dash attempt was way too ambitious, so I scrapped that idea and started again from scratch, this time stamping the chevron background then pasting the flowers on top and cutting out the decorated Lil Inkers frames - much more time effective! As the only sentiment in these sets close to Happy Birthday was "Happy Day", I added the little "Bee" to create a "Happy B'Day" sentiment, stamped in Hero Arts Wet Cement.  The Little Tangles chevrons were stamped in Hero Arts Butter Bar and Orange Soda, and the Fresh Blooms flowers and bee left over from yesterdays card, had been stamped over spritzed Dylusions backgrounds with white embossing powder.

As you can see from the extra sequins, enamel dots and twine on my desk, none of this ended up on my card - even though I was running out of time, I didn't feel it needed any - OK well, maybe a little sequins wouldn't have gone amiss ;)
