HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMA...

This is the card I made for Emma's birthday...copied from this months Simply Handmade...I covered the front of the card with a sheet from MME Wild Asparagus collection and then took a piece of cream card and spritzed it with Butterscotch Alcohol Ink (mixed with water) and then Gold Perfect Pearls (mixed with water) then stamped the flourishes using SU Old Olive - I had originally done this the other way round, stamped then spritzed but the flourishes blurred-oops!!! I stitched this piece onto the card using a zig-zag stitch and proceeded to snap one of the needles and then the thread kept breaking but I don't think the stitching was that bad considering (Emma just don't look too closely at the back). I made a couple of popsicle flowers and attached these using brads, added some green ribbon with a little tag attached, dotted some diamontes around for a bit of sparkle and voila...there you have it!!! I hope she liked it....

This is one I made a while ago (again inspired from a Simply book)... I think the patterned paper is K&Co, I made the heart using the Cricut and then embossed with the Sizzix...used an SU punch on the edge of the notepaper(for my friend), the flower is one I got from Au Natural and the rub-on I bought last year from Dyan's shop at Scrap Attack...I really like these and didn't realise til I rubbed it on that it was a 'fuzzy' rub-on... (sorry can't remember who makes them as I keep losing the packet). I sent this one to my friend Di, just because... x
