Happy Birthday

Afternoon Everyone

Firstly a quick thank you for all your kind comments that have been left on my previous cards, means a lot and I do enjoy reading them. 

On to today's card I have for you a card I have made for my husbands aunts birthday, she turns 50 at the end of the month so I wanted something simple and elegant I took inspiration from a card that was on the Internet but unfortunately I have no contact details for the owner (if it is you please let me know and I will put the recognition on that you deserve) As I didn't want my card to be a simple copy I changed it slightly by putting extra ribbon on the card, and card candi which I love as they do resemble brades and the faux look of the is just perfect for this card. The card I have also embossed at the top and at the bottom, and where the embossing ends on each section I have used a black velvet ribbon to hide the end of the embossing panel. To finish the card I have added very small clear gems on the flowers and under the sentiment.

I also made the exact same card for my friend who also turned 40 this week but unfortunately in my hurry I forgot to photograph the card. I did the 40th card in purple and creams and put a big 40 on the front in place of three of the card candi. 

I will try and get a pic of it but can not guarantee it. 

Anyway enough of the jabbering on here is the card.
