Heartfelt Creations Birthday Wishes

Good morning!
I love petunias, they are my favorite hanging basket flower.
My petunias are growing so nicely this year too!  I think all the rain we had this year really nourished the earth with much needed nutrients that had been lacking in recent years because everything is growing well this year!

This is my card for this week's Heartfelt Creations post.

Birthday Wishes


Other products: Pearl halves, Spellbinder Labels Twenty, Distress Inks-(Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberries, Squeezed Lemonade), Brilliance Ink-Pearlescent Purple, Mini-Metallics Rub-Ons, Viva Inka Gold-(gold, silver and copper), White card stock, Pink card stock, Crystal Stickles, 3-M Foam Tape.

Card size is 6 X 6.  Start with folded white card 6 X 6 and then layer with pink card stock 5 3/4 X 5 3/4, next is the designer paper from the Classic Petunia Collection, 5 5/8 X 5 5/8 then sponge edges withe Distress Inks. Cut a white Decorative Border from Decorative Borders and Pockets.  Cut a white and a gray Raindrops on Roses die.  Cut the gray one in half to use as a basket.  Rub with the Metallics Rub-Ons and also with Inka Gold, Silver and Copper, giving it an aged iron look.  Stamp, die cut and sponge the flowers and leaves from the Small Classic Petunias.  I did yellow, lavender, purple and pink petunias, add glue and Crystal Clear onto tips of flowers.  Die cut the Wildwood Floral smallest flowers from blue.  Shape all the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and glue together, add Prills to the centers and add Yellow Nuvo to the centers of the tiny blue flowers.  Stamp sentiment from the Small Classic Petunias onto designer paper to match the small tag cut out.  Edge tag and die cut sentiment with Distress Inks.  Use foam tape under basket and attach 3 strands of cord then tie the cord at the top and loop around Decorative Border where it looks like it could be a hook. Attach small tag to the right top of the border then glue the border down starting at the left top corner (corner to corner on the decorative paper).  Glue the white Raindrops on Roses down on card and then the popped up basket.  Start "filling" the basket with flowers and leaves from Wildwood Floral.  Use the tiny blue flowers as fill in.  Add the sentiment layer to the card on the left side of basket and then add pearls to the border.  Stamp, die cut and color Hummingbirds, add Stickles. Use foam tape to attach Hummers to the card.
