Birthday wishes ...

Another gerbera card to share!  It is my daughter's birthday today and this is the card I created for her:

I took inspiration for the flowers and colours from the September challenge at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge:

It would never have entered my head to put such vibrant colours together but I am so please that I did.  The result is a very happy card, ideal for my daughter's birthday.

I used:

Uniko Studio Gerbera stamp
Distress inks - picked raspberry, peacock feathers, spiced marmalade, marigold
Stampin Up Gorgeous grunge and Off the Grid stamp sets.
Light Molding Paste
Chickenwire reversed stencil
