Birthday Card

Hi there

Well.... now that I have been left in peace and quiet as the rest of my household have gone to bed, I thought I would quickly post this birthday card I made for one of my oldest and dearest friend's (sorry Rach not for you, but keep dreaming hehe) birthday this Friday.

The layout is pretty much a straight copy from a card on the very talented Bev Rochester's blogsite, if you haven't already you should check out her cards they are absolutely stunning!!!

The gorgeous image and circular stamp are from Lily of the Valley and coloured with Distress Inks.  The large flower and its centre pebble are from prima while the small rosebuds, roses and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts as is the red ribbon I think.

A few close ups of the front.......

The loveheart doily behind the picture is made from using a die (I think Marion D but not a 100% sure of that) and they are just gorgeous, check out the small one the inside cover and you will see what I mean.

the inside.......

The papers are from Kaiser's 6X6 paper pad English Rose.  I am not really a red person but Sarah (who I made card for is) and I really like the red contrast with the soft green paper.

Close ups of the inside.......

and the back.......

I finally got around to ordering a really cool stamp to place on the back of my cards from Whimsey Stamps, they have some fab designs, it even includes my blog address how cool is that!!!!
I think if you click on the picture it will enlarge for easier reading. :)

Well this time I had better go to bed or else I will be in big trouble as it is really really late now.

Goodnight, sweet dreams and I will catch you next time.
