Happy Birthday, AAA Cards!

It's the AAA Cards Clean and Simple Challenge's 4th birthday and they are asking us to post a birthday card for their challenge, as well as participating in their birthday bloghop.


Here's my card:


It was done by putting Distress Oxide on my craft sheet, spritzing with water, and smooshing tissue paper into it, drying between colours.

I glued it onto a piece of cs then die cut the flowers. I went over the stems with a green marker.

For a background, I lightly sponged some of the Picked Raspberry through a stencil, added a sentiment, cut a second flower to layer under the first for extra dimension, and popped it up on fun foam.

Happy Birthday, AAA Cards!





Supplies:
Stamps - unknown sentiment
Ink - Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Faded Jeans, and Salty Ocean
Paper - white cs, tissue paper
Size - A2
Accessories - Penny Black Field of Dreams die, Memory Box Texture Mesh stencil, green marker
