Anniversary card

Well it's been quite a while since I last posted. My new job is very exhausting since I'm still in the training phase. Hopefully once I get into the groove everything will go back to normal. I wanted to share a quick card I made for my parents friends anniversary. 

I am currently in love with paper flowers! They can be so much fun and a very simple way to add a nice touch. I used the Jaded Blossom original flag die, which I just love so much! some flowers from recollections, the scallop circle I cut out on my silhouette, the sentiment is stampin up and a few pearls from CTMH.

Hope you like it and have a great weekend!

Jaded Blossom Monthly Challenge

Hey everyone! Happy Labor day, I've had the last 3 days off and yet haven't gotten to craft at all. =( I
m definitely making time today! Here's my project for the Jaded Blossom Sept. Monthly Challenge. I just love this card it is my first attempt at a pop-up card and I think it turned out pretty good. It was for my friend Todd's 30th birthday and we had a blast and he loved the card.

Here's the card standing up I used Pink Paislee paper for the base and some shimmery blue paper from recollections that I embossed with sizzix embossing folder snowballs. I then faux letterpressed the 30 that I cut out on my silhouette with the same embossing folder and CTMH tulip ink. I used the make a wish set from Jaded Blossom for my sentiment. 

Here's a look at the inside of the card.

The card file is from the Silhouette store and I colored the "frosting" and candles with my copics.  

Hope everyone has a happy and safe labor day!!
