Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

I have to make this post a quick one as I'm meant to be packing for Ally Pally as I schedule this.

Background - border is from Floral Footsteps Stamp set stamped using Worn Lipstick, Couture Creations Taylor Embossing Folder. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over it and edged with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.

Image is from Floral Foorsteps Stamp Set, stamped with Jet Black Archival, embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder, coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints - Crimson Sparkle & Frosted Mallow from the Summer Shades Set, Emerald Gold & Antique Green from the Luscious Greens Set and a little Yellow Sparkle from the Autumn Sunset Set. Flowers are actually coloured the same colour but look different as the light catches them. Cut out with Spellbinders Opulent Ovals.

Sentiment is from same stamp set, cut out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die.

Leaves cut using Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set. Scrunched up flower made using Spellbinders Blossom 5.

Card assembled as shown with some White Pearls in the top corners and Dusky Pink PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Hi Julia
    Great card have fun in Ally Pally thank you Tracy w x

  2. I like the border treatment with reversed shoes, to compliment the topper. Also the darker colours show up much better on my monitor, there are times when I can hardly make out your cards as they seem so pale.

    Don't work too hare at Ally Pally!

    1. Sorry, that should read 'Don't work too hard at Ally Pally!'

    Fabulous Darling, would love a pair of shoes like these - but I guess I will have to have the stamps instead. Brilliant border..
    All I can say about the flower is - your looks amazing, mine on the other hand did not look like that last weekend

    Love and crafty hugs
