Wishing you the happiest of birthdays

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 10am with Dave and 1pm with Steph. Times changed a few times yesterday so please check the schedule.

Here's today's card -

The background, I ran a piece of Apricot Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Art Deco Fanfare Embossing Folder.

I mixed a little Mango Orange Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Circus Brights Mica Spray Set with some Aurora Sparkle Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste and applied it through the Rope Frame Mask. I put it aside to dry. Once dry, I cut an aperture out the centre using a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares die.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Captivating Squares and inked through the die with Dried Marigold Distress Ink.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Champagne Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Frosted Peach Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and I pierced around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by. See you later!

Julia.
