A Fancy Happy Birthday

This month Stampin' Fancy Friday is making birthday cards.  I chose to ink up the beautiful Flowing Flowers Stamp Set for this challenge.  Along with the beauty of the images in this stamp set I included the Pearlescent Specialty Paper.  GASP, have you seen this paper?  It is drop dead GORGEOUS!

So, this specialty paper is found in the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog and I have no idea why it took me so long to try this.  IRL this paper is stunning.  Get some, it will take your hand made projects up twelve, thirteen, twenty notches.  It shimmers with power and grace.

My colors include Grey Granite, Petal Pink, Very Vanilla, and Pearlescent.  When you stamp on the Pearlescent Paper is does dry as well and stamps with a softness unlike our cardstocks.

I used a couple die sets to bring the details all together on this card.  For the Pearlescent leaves I used the Forever Flourishing Dies and the greeting is stamped on a Tasteful Labels Die.  All the stamped flowers and leaves were fussy cut with a trusty pair of paper snips.
