Seize the Birthday ~ Inlay die cuts

At Seize the Birthday Challenge we are looking for inlay die cuts on your BIRTHDAY card as our topping this time.
I die cut the Altenew: Best Mom flower three times, the top layer was cut from watercolor paper and colored with my Zigs.  I layered the die cuts to get a raised effect.  Before placing my die cut back into position I used black and pink zig ink and splattered the card with a brush.  I also used some white acrylic paint, although it isn't showing up very well in the photo.  My sentiment is from PTI Bold Blossoms, I stamped it with Verafine and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
I hope you will join us and make a card using inlay die cuts, if you prefer not to use the topping you may make any kind of birthday card.  Please check out the inspiration from the rest of the design team!
Heart Hugs, friends!
