Sending birthday wishes just for you


I used a cream/ivory card blank. The embossed panel was upcycled from an old card, with the addition of the Hobbycraft flowers, sentiment and the garden oval, which are edges with gold foiling (although it looks more like black here). A couple of strips of gold trim bordered the embossed panel (the piece on the right wasn't long enough, but covered the bits either side of the oval.
