Birthday Wishes

Hi Everybody,

A pretty card with lots of layers for today's design and I made this into a birthday card, but you can use any words that you may have in your own collection that are in two parts.

The video will show you how I did it and it is not hard to do but quite effective once completed.

I used three toning shades of turquoise and then added in the silver glitter card for embellishment.  I used tiny little gemstones to add extra to the flower centres

The envelope just finishes it off to send the card to your recipient and matches the card front to a tee.

Make it in soft pastel pinks and add mulberry flowers to the front,  but then you would need to make a box for it as it would be too deep for the envelope.

But I am sure the ladies that you send it to would love it for their special day whatever the celebration is ... birthday, anniversary, engagement, just because. And obviously you would need to have those two part words in your craft stash to be able to do that

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
