A crafting pal's birthday

This week my lovely pal Linda celebrated her birthday and this is the card I made for her.

To create the card I used a deckle edge C6 base card and some bits of double sided patterned paper I had in my 'bits box'.  The top half is actually a very pale pink and cream design, although it looks more like beige in the picture.

The wording at the bottom was stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink using a set of Hampton Art stamps.  I think this is great fun and would be appropriate for many cards and/or scrapbooking.

I used a Memory Box set of dies to create the rosette, a Recollections mini punch for the tiny spikey circles attached to the tape and added clear gems over the punched circles.  The sentiment in the centre of the rosette is from a set by SU! and I added just a touch of Platinum Stickles around the centre layer.  The MB diecut was a little 'fiddly' to crease up, but I think it would be easier with lighter weight paper.  The paper I used was almost thin card rather than paper as it is very thick.

Hope you enjoyed your special day Linda and managed to spend your birthday money wisely !!  I'll have to check on your purchases when we next meet up.

Thanks for visiting my bloggie today, enjoy the rest of your day.
