Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

I'm heading north east this afternoon for a demo at Apple Crafts in Chapel St Leonards near Skegness tomorrow. My daughter, Kathryn, is coming with me - hope she won't be too bored!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder.

I cut the Couture Creations Nostalgia die, the circular die from the Elissa Frames n Frills Die Set and the Birthday die from the Happy Birthday Everyday Essentials Die Set - all out of Rich Red Card.

I cut the little birdy from the Couture Creations 2 Tags & Bird Branch Die Set and the Happy from the Happy Birthday Everyday Essentials Die Set out of Milk Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of Cream Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
