My No 1.....

Today I'm sharing the card I've made for my Hubby's birthday.  It's the Big Day on wednesday and I think we are heading out for a nice steak dinner in the evening. 

I've used the fabby Papermania Portobello Road paper stack, some Platinum Stickles, gold mirror card and a sentiment created on my computer for my design.

With the forthcoming Olympics everywhere we look at the moment, the design idea I came up with was to create a gold medal effect. 

I diecut a spikey circle using a nestie and some gold mirror card.  I then added faux spirelli using my Hougie Board, finishing the 'medal' with the sentiment I created on my computer.

The background Union Jack layer is one of the sheets from the paper stack, the shaped layer is a diecut from the same stack which I added over a square of blue paper, also from the stack.

I finished the layers by adding Platinum Stickles around the edges of the shaped diecut and the square layer. 

Nice and simple but I think Hubby will like it.  I'm safe to publish his card on here early as he rarely looks at my blog !! 

Thanks for taking the time to check out my project today.

Lovely choice for Tom. He'll love it. Love how you have made the medal in the centre and love the papers too.

Happy Birthday to him for Wednesday and enjoy your steak tea :-)
