Another purple birthday card

This card uses the background piece of the M & S gift card that I upcycled on the previous card - so I've managed to get two cards from it. Once again I started with a deep purple card blank, matted the recycled gift card background on to which I added sizzix movers & shapers fancy label die cuts in gold and patterned paper. I stamped on to the patterned paper with one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called 'sparklers', inked with stazon vibrant violet - I love the way that this matches the design on the patterned paper (almost by accident!). I used another piece of the patterned paper to mat and layer with the peel off sentiment.

This is for:
