This week's card is for one of my best friends - Heather - she celebrates her birthday on 27th May. And I couldn't think of a more appropriate colour palette for her!
I decided to make the sentiment the main feature of my card and used Spellbinders Labels 20 to die cut a bit of white card. I coloured this with milled lavender and dusky concord and then I stamped a huge "Happy Birthday" greeting in dusky concord. I embossed the greeting for some shine. I made a mat for the sentiment using the die which I used to cut out the top layer. This time I drew around the outside of the die and cut out the mat which gives a smaller border than the next size die!! I made my own backing paper using the same colours and my favourite rose stamps. I added some ribbon and used dimensional tape to mount the sentiment.
