Succulent birthday card

Hello crafty friends! Happy FriYAY!!

Today I'm here with a card inspired by Timeout challenge- picture, Paper players-sketch and Seize the birthday challenge-theme.
All of them had the elements which I enjoy the most creating, succulents, woodgrain, trios, texture, mandala etc.

I started my card with two white panels. One cut in many pieces lengthwise and ink smushed to mimic wooden planks using pumice stone distress inks. Then stamped with woodgrain stamp, arranged and adhered on another panel.
Stamped beautiful mandala design for the background.

Then I stamped, colored and fussy cut succulents from MFT. Using tag die namics l cut out three tag elements and stamped mandala design using grey distress oxide ink for subtle look.
Then adhered the succulents on it. Later on to back panel with 3d foam dimensionals.

By ink blending my sentiment strip with seedless preserves, prepped and embossed belated birthday sentiment from Mft in gold, then adhered it on my card.
Finally added sparkle, highlights and few sequins filled with liquid accents to finish my card.

Hope you like my card! Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This is a lovely take on our challenge. Love how you went with the background mandalas so softly and then stunning colouring and a touch of pink-like you added the sentiment on this. Thanks for joining Time Out x
