Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image, sized smaller (just 2 1/2" tall) to fit inside of a die cut oval . . .
My sentiment, stamped onto a QuicKutz mini tag, is from a Close To My Heart Annotations set. A Zip Sweetheart alphabet die forms the letter "B" that I added to my sentiment. A jump ring holds a brass "wish" charm.
The coordinating handmade flowers are made from my card scraps with punches. The Bachelor's Button is formed from a Punch Bunch medium and small cosmos, mini sun, and McGill pine branch. My small daisies are formed from a Paper Shaper 6-petal daisy and Punch Bunch mini sun and birch leaf. I painted a light layer of Diamond Stickles over each for added glimmer. Here's a closer view of my flower cluster . . .
I've layered TPC Studio Party Hearty Birthday Wishes and Birthday Candles double-sided patterned paper with Bazzill cardstock to form my square criss-cross card. A Magnolia Doohickeys Tilda Lace Die cut edge provides a sweet lacey border for each side of my criss-cross. I die cut my image and matting using Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals. This photo shows my completed criss-cross birthday card where I've used the Li'l Lynda's Piano Forte digital image designed by Elisabeth Bell . . .
The stamped sentiment on the insert of my card is from a Stampin' Up! Elegant Greetings set.
