Card for MILs Birthday


Using my Cuttlebug I embossed and then chalked the leaf backgound. The petals were ones I die cut and embossed ages ago ( papers from Artylicious - free download ) and didn't know how to use 'em! - They are so big! I curled them round a battery I happen'd to have to hand so they stand up and stuck them down in the centre using glossy accents. Aqua mist satin ribbon is from Papertrey inc, as is card. I punched the lower edge with my new threading water punch from Fiskars ( love it! ) and added the hat pin threaded with beads from SU. Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by xx
