Aunty's birthday

This is the card that i've made for my Aunty...

I started with an embossed background. My Aunty likes to play bingo, so the Tim Holtz large bingo embossing folder is perfect.
I die cut the Large Iceland Poppy and added some shading with promarkers before adhereing the flower head together. I slipped the stem through the lettering on the 'for you' scripty die, then glued the whole lot onto the bingo card base. I brushed over the petals of the flower with a clear Wink of Stella pen.
The word 'Aunty' is from a retired stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps. I hand-cut the little tag to fit nicely around it.
The strip of paper at the bottom of the card is from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid paper pad.
