Happy Birthday Karen.....




My friend Karen has a birthday today...Happy Birthday Karen and this is the card that I made for her...excuse the awful picture it was a really dull day...

Using the small centre die from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis set I cut and embossed 9 squares, mounted onto foam pads and popped a little pearl in the centre of each square...for the backing I used my dotty embossing folder.
I used a Spellbinders flourish die and flowers to pop round her name....corners are also from the Fleur De Lis set...

Its quite chilly today but hoping we will have some sunshine for our Bank Holiday weekend....

Thank you for stopping by...

I reckon Karen with love this pretty card. Great use of the die - so often the smaller ones in a set hardly ever get used.

Gracious, this is gorgeous. What a wonderful way to use the die center, as it made a beautiful lacey front piece for your card. Karen will be head over hills when she opens this pretty card. Love the blue & white color combo TFS & Happy Wkend.
