Gertie's Birthday

Good evening!
I know this post is really late but I'm actually at a stamping retreat this weekend and had no time this am to post. So...better late than never right???

Today's card is a funky little birthday card that gets most of it's charm from the designer paper I used. This pair is from the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose collection called Gertie's Papers. I layered two panels of dp over the face of a Marina Mist card. The dark band across the middle looks black but is actually Early Espresso. The stamped swirl panel is die cut with the Top Note Bigz die and stamped with the large swirl from Priceless in Old Olive.
To finish it off, I punched an assortment of flowers, layered them together and added a gem to the middle for a little bling. I also added a few really tiny gems to a few spots on the swirls.

Thanks for stopping in, and for being patient with me while I'm off stamping!
Have a great weekend.
