A "Magical" Birthday Card

I've been wanting to post this card for a couple of days now, but have not had the time to sit down and write. It's amazing how busy life can get, and how exhausted you can be running around after a 15 month old all day! I have honestly had to learn which battles to loose, and which to not give that much importance to. My stress level has therefore decreased a bit and I'm no longer going crazy over every little detail that does not go the way it should. I'm just cruising along, trying the best that I can, adjusting slowly, but surely to the "I'm not supermom" thought. Ha!
This card is already in the hands of it's sweet owner, and I'm very happy how it turned out. I posted a video some days ago on my channel showing the process of matching the flowers to my project using Lindy's Stamp Gang's Magical Micas. You can watch the step by step video HERE. The Magical Mica color I used was just perfect for this card. It was the color Delphinium Turquoise. I also sprayed the flowers with a Glitz Spritz Spray that I can't seem to put down these days. Want to guess which one? If you follow my blog (which if you don't, you can easily do by just clicking the "follow" button at the top right of the screen), you know that it's the Glitz Spritz in the color Desert Moon Gecko Green. I just can't get enough of it! I think the use of both of these products made the flowers match my designer paper exactly! Take a look for yourself and you be the judge.
I used one of my Greeting Farm Stamps and the Ancestry Designer Paper Collection from K and Company. I love the shimmer of the flowers, and to me, they matched so perfectly that it looks like they were part the paper collection. To think they were once plain white Cherry Blossoms!
Let me know what you think in the comments. I love reading from you!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    I'm so happy you posted details because you know me with questions. I love the nestabilities shape, love the colors you chose and just everything.

    I'd pay top dollar for this card.
