Black and White Floral Birthday Card

Good morning! How is everyone doing getting back into the routine? Since we homeschool, yesterday was our big day to get started again - and as usual, things rolled a little slowly at first. I worked on this a little bit here and there all morning in between helping them with their schooling - and really love how it came out!

I made this with a few challenges in mind - first up, the photo inspiration from this weeks Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Winter Wonder:

And then the lovely challenge at Virginia's View Challenge - Clean Slate:

Finally, this weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Make New Friends But Keep the Old (I used a brand new stamp set, and one I have already used several times):

I started off by heat embossing several images from the Altenew set called Lacy Scrolls - so intricate and pretty! I fussy cut them out, then adhered the flowers with foam adhesive to my front panel of two shades of Simon Says Gray cardstock, and tucked a couple of the scrolls in there as well. Stamped my sentiment from a new Altenew set I just got called Halftone Hello. Added a few black sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and some pattern paper from American Crafts to finish it off. I love how elegant and classy it feels with the simple black and white color scheme!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
