Happy 40th Birthday Trish!

Today is my best friend's 40th birthday! Happy Birthday Trish!

This is a "Z" fold card.

Using the striped printed paper, I cut it 11 x 4 1/4 inches. Score vertically at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2 inches from the left edge. Fold card in half, then fold narroer panel to left.

Cut a 2 1/2 x 4-inch piece out of So Saffron printed paper and adhere to front panel on the left. Cut a 3/8 x 4-inch strip of white cs - add your brads here, otherwise, you will see the prongs on the outside of your card; adhere vertifically to So Saffron piece 1/4 inch from the left edge.

Open card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4-inch pice of white cs; centre and adjere to larger panel. Cut a 5 1/4" x 1 3/4-inch strip of striped printed paper and a 5 1/4 x 1 1/8-inch So Saffron printed paper. Centre and adhere to striped strip. Pierce a hole through centre of So Safforn strip and attach your decorative brad; adhere strips to white cs 1 1/8 inches from top edge of card.

Stamp your sentiment in black onto lower right corner of the card.

Stamp the single flower from Bloomin' Beautful on white cs and stamp the flower portion again approximately 10 more times onto scrap. Using my watercolour crayons (I used Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue) to create the various hues to colour in the flowers.

I then cut out the flowers, layered one just below the main one, and with the rest of the remaining flowers, I cut out the petals to create a 3D look.
Here is a close of the flowers. I added glitter glue to the petals to make it sparkle.
Here is the side view of the flower so you can see the layers.
Your comments and opinions are very much welcomed!
