Have a Magical Birthday
by Jinny Newlin

Morning, y'all!  It's Jinny here today, sharing my big sister's magical, garden, birthday card.  Enjoy!

Poppy Have a Magical Birthday - JinnyNewlin

I started this card by stamping those Watercolor Wildflowers, that I simply cannot get enough of, in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, on watercolor paper.  I then spritzed over them with water to get more of a watercolor effect and splattered everything with those same shades of Distress Inks mentioned above, as well as Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  That set the foundation for my garden.  While it was drying, I pieced together the Blooming Poppy with Real Red, Basic Black, and Garden Green cardstock die cuts and the Ragged Daisy with white, Daffodil Delight, and Lucky Limeade cardstock die cuts.  Once they were adhered, in their respective positions, to the watercolor piece, I grounded them with a Preppy Flowers, Wild Wasabi cardstock die cut.

The prepped piece was then anchored, to the Pistachio Pudding cardstock card face, with black-threaded, straight, machine stitches.  The Magnificent Mini Faeries were die-cut from Basic Black and white cardstocks; pieced together; and adhered, with foam tape, within the garden itself.  Their wings also got a healthy dose of Clear Wink of Stella for shimmer and shine.

I then die-cut the Pinpoint Balloons from Coastal Cabana cardstock; adhered them, in their respective locations; also gave them some shimmer and shine with Clear Wink of Stella, coated with Glossy Accents; and anchored them to the faeries' fists with hand-penned strings.

The black-embossed, "HAVE A magical BIRTHDAY" sentiment, from Fairy Greetings, completes the look.
