Birthday Card for my Great Niece

Today, I would like to show you a birthday card I made recently for 
one of my great nieces.

I love embossing folders and I am embarrassed to admit I have quite a few! 
This Cuttlebug 'Happy Birthday' folder is probably one of the first ones I 
bought along with my Cuttlebug, but it's not been used for quite a while.
After embossing the card, I lightly inked a blending brush with Tattered Rose
distress ink, and then added Crystal Glamour Dust to give it some sparkle.
The ribbon and pink card were coloured with a Dusky Rose Promarker pen,
so that it all co-ordinated.

The items I have used are:-
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Happy Birthday
Cuttlebug Alphabet - Olivia
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circles and Scalloped Circles 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Craft your Passion - Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking in.

  10. I have this embossing folder too - probably one of my first ones like you! Still a "go to" one though. Lovely card you made with it.

  11. A very pretty card Janice. Pink and glamour dust sound just perfect for a little girl. This was also one of my first embossing folders and is still a favourite. Barbxx

  12. This is a great design and lovely to see the embossing as the main design rather than just a background, and it looks fab with the inked detail :-)
    I really should use my embossing folders more often!
    Big hugs, Kat xx
