Birthday Card for a Friend

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made recently for a friend.
Although I have owned this Spellbinders 3D embossing folder for a while
now, this was the first time I have used it.
I ran the folder through my Cuttlebug using some Crafter's Companion Centura
Pearl card, which I must say embosses beautifully.
(Apologies for quality of the photo, as the matted card looks black, whereas
I actually used wine red!)

The items I have used are:-
Spellbinders 3D M-bossabilities - Ornate Labels 1
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels 1
Art Impressions flower stamp - B2429
Sentiment stamp - Craft Magazine Free gift 
Docrafts Xcut Dies - Tags and Bookplate

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

  13. It's always fun when you finally get round to using some new stash you've had for a while and this embossing folder is really pretty. It provides such a lovely frame for the sweet stamped flower, and I like the pops of colour against the pearly white :-)
