Wishing you a happy Birthday

I made this card this afternoon using the pretty leaves 3D embossing folder by Lisa Horton with a piece of white card, brushing with green distress ink and mounting on to green mirror card.  I then used an offcut of the mirror card to cut the mini doilie from Lisa Horton's mini doilies set. The stamped sentiment was inked with memento cottage ivy and stamped on to a piece of paper that came with Lisa's magazine, cutting again with the green mirror background, both from her Double layered sentiments set.

A few of the die cuts went in the bin before I got the 'sandwich' right (wasn't thinking straight - lol!) and at one stage the Gemini just stopped and went off the air .... I switched off, on, off, on etc .... tried gently pushing the plates .... nothing ... until suddenly I switched on again, the lights came on and the plated went through .... phew - lol!

As usual, it was difficult to get a better photo because of reflection.
