Hi, thank you for stopping by

Please keep checking in as I have lots of craft goodies for sale at unbelievable prices!

This is a 7"x7" ivory card base where I added a thin purple and lilac mat onto the base.  I then matted ivory, purple and lilac card, smaller than what is on the base, and added foam tape to the back to give dimension.

I then measured a piece of ivory card to create the focal point and to fit in diagonally across the card.Using the Triple Gemini Dies - Cepheus I cut  the die at each end of the card then inverted it to complete the design.

The sentiment is from the 'Delightful Sentiments Range' for CE, this was stamped in black Archival.  'Cape Daisy' flower dies by SW for CE was used to make the layers on both flowers using lilac card and purple card for the flower centres, finishing the look with 2 flat backed ivory pearls

Original card showcasing the Cepheus dies by Sue Wilson can be seen on her blog, I have made several changes to my card

Thank you for visiting

All for now...

I used an A4 pink card and folded it landscape.
On white card I used 'Best Wishes' Die by SW for CE to cut and emboss 3 times then adhered it onto white card.  The 'Happy Birthday' die and cupcake die is, again, by SW for CE.  I lightly coloured the cupcake base in pink and coloured the flame in yellow.  The 'Birthday Cake' die is by Savvy Dies.  I cut and embossed this, added double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the die cut then sprinkled Iced Snow by CE to it.  The flame on the candles are coloured in a ProMarker Red Pen.  The balloons were made with a punch by Woodware.  I applied glue to them and added Diamond Sprinkles.  On the top balloon I placed 2 tiny hearts.  Baker's Twine was used to 'hold' the balloons and the small ribbon is made with a die from my own stash

I would like to enter this card in:
MAWTT's blog challenge 'Birthday Cake'
