Wishing you lots of love on your birthday

'Wishing you lots of love on your birthday' is the sentiment that is debossed in gold foiling on silver on the deckled sentiment panel - it's difficult to read on the photo - if I had taken the photo immediately over the sentiment all you would have seen would have been me with the camera in the reflection.

Anyway, this card is another that has been cannibalised and is now nothing like the original, including the size of the card. This time I've chosen a DL card blank and edged it top and bottom with Hobbycraft ribbons with gems. I'm not sure where the pink and white flowers came from, but they are very pretty with tiny pearls in the centres.

Thinking of you

The image of this card was originally on a twisted easel card, which I took to pieces and have used on this card. It is a Penny Black sweet peas stamp coloured with copics. This is mounted on to the pink background and on to a lilac card blank, with the addition of the craftime 'Thinking of you' sentiment.

The embossed were created with a Create too folder, sanded and swiped with firebrick DI.
