Here's a quick birthday card I made using scrapbooking paper. I have so much paper that I thought I better use some of it up.
Here's what the whole page looks like. I decided to use the bottom left of the page as I would have a place to stamp the sentiment on the bottom right. I'm not sure if you can see, but the flowers were initially white ... so I decided to add a bit of pink to the flowers.
Then I mounted the piece of scrapbooking paper on burgundy paper and then on the white cardstock.
Here's a close up of the flowers ... you could see a hint of the pink on the flowers, which I coloured with colour pencils; and of course, I embossed the sentiment.
