Wishing you the happiest of Birthdays

Hi Bloggers.

Day 2 at Craftasmic in Taunton today - a full day of demos for both John & I. It's ticketed event which is sold out so please don't make a special trip to see us if youhaven't been allocated a ticket.

Here's today's card -

This card features the beautiful Vierge Square Die from Couture Creations. I have cut it ut of Coconut White and Black Card and offset them to give a shadow. I cut them out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A to give a neat finish to the outside edge. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Sky Blue Card and cut it slightly smaller than the Vierge Square frame. I peeled away the backing and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using a die from the Couture Creations Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set.

With the leftover bits of covered Sky Blue Card, I cut some flowers using the Couture Creations Falling Blossoms Die and added Diamond Sprinkles to those too. I popped some Blue Dazzlers in the centres.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
