A Rose Wonder and Flourish Thinlits Birthday Card

I found this fun card at Deborah's "Cards Paper and Scraps" blog.  And as usual, I did change it a little.  Mostly because I was using what I had.  I didn't have the same words she used (I don't know what set her words were from, she didn't list it). I used the words from the "Rose Wonder set and made it work.

I didn't have the same decorative paper for the left side, so I used some from the Neutrals 12" x 12" stack.  

I didn't have the Emerald Green enamel dots.  So I took some pearls and a dark red Sharpie marker and colored them in.

There were a couple of things on this card that I thought were a new and fun idea.  I liked how the leaf hung over the word panel.  Probably not so new but it's not done very often.  I also like how the border piece behind the words was left solid instead of open like it's suppose to be.  It made for a nice border edging.  I thought it was a bit tough to keep all of the pieces in place.  I even tried the Press & Seal paper.  That was a HUGE mistake.  I ended up running it though my Big Shot and then turning the plates upside down so the little pieces would stay in place. Then I cut a 1/4" strip of Basic Black card stock and ran tape across it.  I set it in place on the backside of the border piece and carefully removed it from the Thinlit.  A few pieces didn't want to stick so I had to press them in place and try again.  It took a couple of minutes but I did get it to work.

I like how the card turned out. It's a little different than Deborah's but it's still pretty much the same!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
