'Happy Birthday' Emma

Sunday already:)....I hope you are all well! I am in my craft room again today (ok....hubby says I am always in my craft room).....Watching the re-runs of 'Friends'..... I watch these over and over....I know , it's a bit of a 'silly' programme, but it's light hearted and is funny:) I don't normally post on a Sunday, but hubby is fishing (which he has done for the last 23yrs on Fathers Day) and I had a late night making this card, so thought I would share it with you today:)
The image is a Whimsy Stamp - Wee Stamps called Peggy (Available from The Hobby House)....I have coloured her in with copics.
The card base measures 6 3/4 x 6 3/4.

  • The Banner is from Whimsy Stamp - Banner Pennant Die Set, as is the sentiment...which I have stamped onto cream shrink plastic, cut out using the Bottle cap die and used in the centre of my bow.
  • The papers are from Maja Design...just love these:) Which are available from Live and Love Crafts.
  • I have used some cream and blue card stock and distressed all the edges with Tim Holtz distress tool and inked with Walnut Stain distress ink.
  • The letters are cut out with a die from Hero Arts.
  • I have used dies from Go Kreate - Large frame: Frilly #10.Available from The Hobby House.
  • I have cut the foliage out with a Heartfelt Creations die - Gift Ensemble die set
  • The blue rose, and blue buds are from Live and Love Crafts.
  • The cream roses, pearls, lace, and silver pearl button are all from The Hobby House.
