Happy birthday


It's time for our new Pearly Sparkles challenge which starts today, as always on the 1st of the month, over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog. Our theme this month is Include a sentiment or verse. I've made a birthday card  for a friend who really appreciates handmade cards. I've used a mix of some embossed card and foiled vellum which has been in my stash for years, plus a new sentiment die I've bought.

I do hope you'll join us over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog this month and share your makes with us. 

Card recipe

8 x 8 Kraft card blank
Gold mirri card for mats and bracken
Kraft card for circle frame and sentiment
Kanban cream card embossed with roses
Hunkydory acetate with gold foiled roses 
Press Cut stitch dot square and circle dies
John Next Door sentiment and Bracken dies
Gold ribbon from my stash

I hope you like the card I've made, please leave a comment to let me know what you think if you've got time. I do appreciate them and like to read them.

Please also join us over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog this month, we'd love to see your makes.
