It's your Birthday

Good afternoon visitors. 
My, how this week has flown by.
It always does when I get carried away in my craft room!

Well, as promised, today's card has been made with my first attempt at using Foamiran to make my flowers. 
Now, it's not the card I had in mind as I had a last minute 'rush job', thanks to my Husband.
He suddenly remembered it was a work colleagues birthday and really wanted a special card to give from the staff.

So here is my first Foamiran flower card.

The supplies used here are 
* LemonCraft paperstack Just Love Me
* Marianne design oval frame LR0293
* Spellbinders swallowtail tags 
* All Occasions dies XL numbers
* Spellbinders Rose creations dies
* Rosy Dot flower dies Type 2
* Foamiran 
* Crelando pastel chalks (flowers)
* Sue Wilson / Creative Expressions Spring foliage
* Ultimate Crafts L'aquarelle Designs sentiment stamp 
* Joy Crafts decorative chalks Pearl  (oval frame)
* Distress ink bundled sage (leaves)
* Stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts
* Promarker lime green (stamens)
* Cosmic shimmer mica powder Pink Ultra and Versacolor pigment ink Raspberry  (numbers)
* Pearls from my stash 

I think the flowers turned out ok for a first attempt, what do you think?
I'm very pleased with the pastel chalks, purchased from Lidl for under £3.00!

I can see playing with Foamiran could become quite addictive, the only negative is using a glue gun which I really dislike but hey, the results are worth the pain of burnt fingertips lol.

I really hope you like my efforts today and thank you so much for visiting x
