Birthday Wishes

Splitcoast Stampers CAS challenge is for a card featuring some dry embossing.  Perfect, as I had already got this background card done and just had to add some other bits. 

The embossed background is a Cuttlebug folder.

The flower, (it kinda looks a bit bedraggled on the photo - it does look better IRL - promise),  was done using the Silhouette to cut out the layers - I've used this one before in another post.  The label was also cut out with the Silhouette and the edges inked. 

The lovely leaf stem is a Sizzix Sizzlet die which I covered with silver embossing powder a couple of times and heated with a heat gun.

The sentiment is from the SU Sincere Sentiments set and the bit of ribbon is from Do-Craft.
