Wishing you a Fabulous Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Bright White Card using the Creative Expressions Brambled Rose Embossing Folder. I cut a strip of paper from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad and matted it onto Black Card. I added a piece of Black Guipire Lace and popped onto a Bright White Card blank.

I stamped the Woodware Special Bird onto Bright White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I added the sentiment that comes with the bird down the side of the image.

I coloured in using Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Pens and Stardust Pens.

I used a little Sakura Clear Star Stardust Pen to the swirls on the image. Once the image was dry, I matted onto Black Card and added it to my card.

I completed my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to each corner.
