It's An A2Z Birthday Bash

This month the A2Z Scrapbooking challenge is "Birthday Bash".  I was in the mood for flowers.  If I have to get something special out, I usually will do more than one project or card.  I have seen so many cards in silvers and white, that I couldn't pass up trying this myself.  I'll call this the "silver edition".

I used a digital sentiment and stamped the panels with the Flowering Magnolia 
(matching die is available)

I stamped bot cards with VersaMark ink and then embossed the images with a very old Silver embossing powder (but it still works beautifully).  On the card below, I sponged distress inks, shabby shutters, twisted citron and ripe persimmon after embossing.  I dropped and spritzed water on the background and die cut the panels to adhere to a card.

Rather than create a background as in the first card, I chose a red ombre panel and stamped a background, embossed it in silver and added a digital "Happy Birthday" across the bottom.
