Birthday Wishes....


Hope y'all had a fabby Bank Holiday (for those of us in the UK!) I can't believe we actually had sunshine here in Sheffield LOL!

Just poppin' in today with a super simple card that probably took longer to make than you could possibly imagine:

The reason it took so long was not only the fiddly cutting of those leaves, but because I decided to try to make my own flower embellishment! If I do this again, I'll definitely be wearing plastic gloves - yup, that ink tends to really stain your fingers LOL! However, on the plus side these flowers are pretty easy to make: simply die cut a few from white cardstock, cover in ink (or spritz with glimmer mist!), scrunch up, let them dry a little, then layer them! Voila! Pretty flower!

Aimes, this is gorgeous! How did you make the actual card? Is it two die cuts stuck together?
