Female Birthday Card

Today I have a birthday card to show you which I made for my card making friend Joy.
It's the first time I have used this new teacup die, and I can see myself using it more often! 
I found a tip on I'm in Haven's blog here, where Lisa suggested it was best to
die cut the tea cups three times in white card and
glue them together one on top of the other. 
This makes it easier to glue the pieces of paper into the spaces.
I then used various pieces of patterned paper I have in my scraps box
to fill in the pieces of each cup.


The items I have used are:-
Memory Box die - Teacup Stack
Crafts-Too Embossing folder - Sweet Flowers (CTFD3058)
Sentiment stamp - free with a magazine
Pearlised chalks for the embossed flowers and leaves.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Jade's Sparkling Butterflies - Always Anything Goes/Use Die Cuts or Punches
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
In the Pink - Spring Flowers

Thanks for looking in.
