Happy Birthday Card for C'est Magnifique

Today I'm sharing the first of two cards I've created with the beautiful November C'est Magnifique "Time After Time" Kit

Tips and Techniques
The beautiful flowers are from the Main Kit and Flower Add-On. The smallest flower I created from mulberry paper using my Bitty Blossoms die. The flourishes are die cut from white cardstock. I dry brushed the flowers with white gesso, then Shimmerz Inklings from the Magnifique Mixed Media kit was brushed onto the flowers and flourishes. 

Here's a closer view. I softened the layered card edges by distressing and stitched around the card edge. I added dyed cheese cloth and flower stamen from my stash.

In this side view, you can see the layered cut outs from the Montage Calling Cards page and delicate die cuts from cardstock. I've used foam squares to pop up some of the center layers. I wrapped the center section with Baker's twine from the Main Kit

One final view. I've used Mixed Media Kit products with dots of Liquid Pearls in the bottom corner and the die cut layers are colored with more of the Shimmerz Inklings. The edge inking is done with Distress Ink from my stash.
