May IARCC "Today I Celebrate You"

Hi everyone, happy Monday! Here is my project for the May I Am Roses Color Challenge. Head on over to the IAR Challenge Blog for more details.

I created two items for this months challenge. The first one is a card. The paper collections I used were both from Basic Grey - Basics Manila & Capella. The sentiments "Today I Celebrate You" & "Just for You" are from Just Rite Stamps - Birthday Sentiments. The bird image was embossed with white embossing powder and stamped on vellum paper. I then used a Spellbinder die - Floral Doily Motifs to cut the image. All the edges of the designer papers were inked with Distress Ink - Antique Linen. (A list of all the I Am Roses flowers used on both the card and mini favor will be listed below)

Mini Favor

I layered a large beige crochet flower from I Am Roses and the two-toned purple gardenia. The sentiment was embossed with white embossing powder onto vellum paper. I used a small circle & scallop punch. Layered on the bottom are some crochet trim & a floral pearl trim from my stash. To tie the favor at the top I used a purple satin trim. For a closer look at both my projects, you can view them here over at my YouTube Channel: Paperdrama.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope that you guys enter to win some fabulous I Am Roses flowers over at the IAR Challeng Blog.

 Have a great week!
