Birthday Bling


I'm popping in with a birthday card today... I have lots more Christmas cards to share but this month I have to accomodate a few birthdays too. I don't know about you but sometimes the transitions from Christmas cards to birthday cards doesn't come easy. Too help me out I bought an embossing folder by Altenew. Like most of you, I have lots of the non 3D e/f's but they rarely get used and I've long admired the cards I see with the 3D folders.
Anyway, my friend celebrates her 70th this coming week and she loves anything with bling so here's what I came up with

And it really sparkles... I started with ink blending and water splatters, ran it through my maching to emboss, swiped some Versamark over the raised areas and added both my gold/silver mix embossing powder and a sparkly embossing powder...

...Then of course some gems. It may sound crazy but I also try to keep in with her decor. Her main room is a mix of greys, mirrored furniture and mirrored pictures. That way I am hoping that the colours I went with are to her liking.

Like I said, I have lots more Christmas cards to share but photographing them has been a nightmare as we have had very dull and wet weather. I really need to get them written and posted too so I'd better get to it.

Have a lovely sunday... 

Till soon
