Special Birthday wishes ...

Tonight's card was created with love for my daughter.  

It seemed fitting to create a card using one of my gelli prints as it was my daughter that bought me the gelli plate for my birthday!  Add to it one of my favourite stamps - the gerbera - and some texture using a musical embossing folder.  My daughter was pleased with the card so to me that is all that matters! 

I'm going to enter the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps Challenge 161 - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Penny Black and More Challenge - Anything Goes

I used:
Uniko - Pure Florals:  Gerbera stamps and dies
           - Pure Florals: Cosmos, sentiment stamp
Sizzix Sheet Music Embossing Folder

Before I go I need to say a big thank you to the Seize the Birthday team for awarding me with a birthday honour for this card - thank you I am truly honoured.

  4. Your gerbera is beautiful and I love the way you stamped the sentiment all around the card edge. The embossed background adds so much texture. Thanks for joining in the challenge at ATSM this week.
