Spellbinders: Glimmer Happy Birthday card

Hi everyone!
Today I have a fun card to share with you using the Spellbinders October Glimmer release. I LOVE every single item from the release and you are in luck because they are on sale right now. 
For my card today I used 3 glimmer hot foil plates: Art Deco Borders, Layered Flowers and Birthday Hugs and wishes.
For the card I started with foiling bunch of flowers and leaves on white card stock using Rose Gold foil, once all were done I die cut them with the coordinating dies, colored with Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers and set them aside.
Next, I cut panel measuring 4"x 5 1/4" from white card stock and foiled Happy Birthday. Once done I did letterpress with the Art Deco border on the panel.
Used foam dots to adhere the flowers and regular adhesive for the leaves. I added little accents using metallic pen and clear enamel dots.
I finished the card by adhering it with fun foam to a top folding note card.

impression obsession: Die Cut Obsession

The Impression Obsession Design Team have set aside a couple days a month to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.

For my card today I used two of the Winter die sets:Primitive Snowflakes and Typewriter sentiments.
To make my card I die cut the snowflake and sentiment 4 times and adhered them together to get a thicker die cut, once dry I applied embossing ink and poured sparkle embossing powder and melted it. I followed this with 4 layers of ultra fine clear embossing powder. Once they were dry I assembled my card.
