Female Birthday Card

First of all, I would like to welcome a new follower to my blog - Carol.
I hope you will be able to pop over to her blog to see her lovely work.

Today, I have a card to share made recently for a friend.
She loves her cups of tea, so I thought this stamp was a good one to use for her.
I thought I would use this embossing folder as she also loves making quilts.
I remember struggling to find this folder to buy, as it was so popular at the time,
but I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I have used it!
The items I have used are:-
Docrafts Papermania Tri-Boss Embossing Folder - Bouffle Patchwork
Die-Namics - Mini Pennant
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Rectangles
Stamp - free gift with crafting magazine

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Double D Challenges - Happy Mother's Day/Happy Birthday
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
A Bit More Time to Craft - Anything Goes

  1. Beautifully designed card Janice. Love the embossing xxx

  2. Brilliant card Janice!Love all the white and the lilac/green. Really pretty. I did grin about the patchwork embossing folder - I did exactly the same thing. Went berserk tracking it down (along with the buttons folder) and have just done a search on my blog. To date I used the buttons one twice and the patchwork one just once! What are we like?!

    It's lovely to see you in the Playground!
