Hi There 

I have not been around for ages. This is my latest card which I hope will qualify for the ATCAS Challenge 'Gold'.

There is not a lot of the 'shiny stuff' but hopefully the gold ink and the pearl will make up for that!

Happy 50th Birthday

Supplies: Clearly Besotted 'Leafy Accents' and 'Fancy Florals' stamps and dies.
Die-namics 'Circle Stax Set 2'  and Memory Box 'Parker Numbers'
Simon Says Stamp 'Happy' die.

I die-cut the leaf and stamped it in Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Field Greens' and then used Color Box pigment ink 'Canary' for the flowers.
I lightly flicked a piece of white card with green Distress Ink and then cut out the circles.
'Happy' was built up with three separate dies which I glued together and then inked with a few layers of Hero Arts Shadow Ink 'Butter-Bar'.
Tried to be as subtle as possible with the '50'  - another big milestone for someone who wanted it to pass un-noticed!

All for now.

Thank you so much for visiting.
