Die Cut and Embossed Birthday Card

Good Morning,

Well it's been a busyish first week of the holidays, Iona had swimming lessons every morning last week and then we went to Belladrum which is a fab little 2 day festival in our local area.  This year the headline acts were Sir Tom Jones and Razorlight.  My other half was also DJing at the Roller Disco at the festival and Iona had a whale of a time roller skating while her dad played the beats!  The weather unfortunately has taken a turn for the worse so we've been holed up at home for the last couple of days.

Today's card is one I made last week and I have to say it wasn't an original idea, it's based on a card I found on Pinterest.  I am absolutely hooked on Pinterest there are such fab ideas for cardmaking and life in general!

The card was made almost entirely from two 12x12 sheets of cardstock.  and I've used various embossing folders to add texture.  The Tattered Floral and Flourish dies are both by Tim Holtz for Sizzix.  All I've added is a matching button tied with paper cord some gems and a rub on sentiment from Kaisercraft.

As this isn't an original idea I'm not entering it into any challenges but I did enjoy making it as it was a change from my usual style.

Thank you for taking a look and if you are interested I now have a cookery blog (link on the right hand side of the screen) there's just a couple of recipes on it so far but I hope to keep adding to it regularly.
