Happy Birthday Heather !!!
Good morning and hope this finds you well.
I didn't think I would have time to post today but having found out that my one and only follower is celebrating her 21st (ahem) birthday today, the least I could do was pop on a birthday card and dedicate it to the lady in question.
It's an 8X8 white linen card base to start.
I then took a smaller square of lilac card and did squiggly swirls (that's a technical term) on it with a VersaMark pen, which I then heat embossed with Stampendous fine detail white powder.
I ran the card through the Grand Calibur with the Craft Concepts Spring Flowers embossing folder. Had to do this a couple of times to extend the pattern.
This layer was then cut into 4 equal strips and each strip matted onto some silver linen effect card.
I then foam padded the strips onto the base card.........make sure you get them the right way up and in the right order for your squiggly swirls to match up.
Topped it all off with some white flowers and flourishes from the Spellbinders Jewels and Flourishes set and purple (sorry they look blue on my screen) flowers from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set. The tag and its layers were just cut "by eye" stamped in purple and Cosmic Shimmer clear embossed and a bit of lilac organza ribbon to finish.
Hope I haven't missed anything and also that I have sussed how to put a proper title on this post..........bring back the abacus, all is forgiven!!!
Happy Birthday to anyone who has a birthday today but especially Heather (go and look at her fantastic blog folks at heatherscreationsandhappenings.blogspot.co.uk)
Hurrah for May Babies !!!!!!! (yes I am one)
