A 'Clean and Simple' Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a 'Clean and Simple' card made for my 'crafting' friend Michelle,
who celebrated her birthday on Monday.

I started by embossing the cross-stitched label die directly onto the card base.
Next I added the poppy die first cut in green card, then in red for the flowers.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using the Misti, then finally added a
couple of sequins and some Nuvo drops.

The products I have used are:-
Inkylicious Twinchies stamp - Happy Birthday
Dies purchased from eBay
Challenges entered:-
