Birthday Passionette-Nature Walk

Hiya phew we really are celebrating hard this month in our team. Today is Kate’s Happy Day!!
 Kate is a fairly new demonstrator who started really strong, and loves her Stampin'Up! journey, I hope it will take her to the heights she has set. Kate loves the colour green and there’s only one green for me right now, Wild Wasabi. I simply love this colour, is fresh and cool and it suits my mood. I have paired it with Baja Breeze ( I am using this colour far to much as well lately) and Basic Gray.

I have crammed so much on here that at one point I didn’t know how I will make it all work LOL
I am also using up more papers lately, here I have used the gala greenhouse one. The friendship wheel was wheeled across a piece of basic grey card in black ink.
I die cut a scallop circle and using the crop o dile I have punched out a circle inside each scallop, I know a bit fiddly but Kate is so worth it Red heart. Next a white circle was embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and it got adhered to the grey one.
Stamped the birdcage from Nature’s Walk and cut out. I popped it on some dimensionals and used a row of tiny pearls to add as rope from the 3D roses and leaves.

I had a go at circle roses and they were not that easy, the concept is very easy but I think I  need to practise a bit more.
Kate hope you had a fabulous day,  HAPPY BIRTHDAY my lovely.
Today I took a decision that  I would give up my day job and take Stampin’Up! on a full time basis. My notice went in and depending how quick we can find and train someone to take over my position I should start working from home full time in about a month’s time. I am so excited now the deed has been done although I am a bit scared and I know I will miss all my lovely colleagues. I know SU will keep me plenty busy and I am looking forward to it already, you should be happier here with more posts at least Winking smile.
Right got to go and answer some emails, I will see you again soon with yet another Birthday Passionette Winking smile card.
EDITED TO ADD. I had so many emails about those roses I decided to shoot a video, enjoy !!!

Till next time Big Hugs xxx
