another birthday card

Hi everyone what a lovely day.  It is so good to see the sunshine helps keep the winter at bay a little longer.  Mind you it is a bit chilly out.

Today I have another recently made birthday card to show you.  This time it is the one I made for one of our daughters-in-law, Elayne, who had a birthday about a week ago.

Here is her card;

I used a white 5 x 7 card blank & the design was stamped onto black card with Versamark ink & then heat embossed with silver EP.  This was layered onto a piece of silver card & then on to the card blank. I stamped again some of the flowers on white card with the silver EP, then cut them out & glued in place over the design.  The sentiment was white embossed on black card & layered onto white card.  Some nice sheer ribbon wrapped down the edge with the bow tied at the bottom for a change, to finish.

I made one almost identical for a club night Show & Tell challenge much earlier in the year & so liked the finish I thought I would re-create it, with some added bling, for Elayne.  The large flower has a cluster of tiny crystal gems in it.

Yesterday I had a good tidy up in my craft room. I did it for 2 reasons - one, I was beginning not to be able to find some things.  As you may remember there is a bed in the craft room & sometimes I temporarily (😁) put things on it.  Well this week it would have been hard to find the bed - so it had to be tidied, which brings me to reason two - my brother is popping over to see me at the weekend & that is where he sleeps.

So, as it is tidy I am going to pop in there now & do some more crafting.
'Bye for now.
