First Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made recently, for our friend's 
granddaughter's first birthday.

I made a similar one HERE earlier in the year where I shared the 
details of how I made the template.
With this card, I first of all embossed the front half of the card, and then 
using a blending brush and Fired Brick Distress ink, 
I lightly brushed over the whole of the embossed area.

The items I have used are:-
Crafter's Companion Signature Collection Embossing Folder- Heart Trellis
Die-Namics - Mini Pennant die
Craft Stash - Alphabet/Number die 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes with a Hand Made Bow
Love to Craft - Anything Goes
Dragonfly Dreams - Think Pink
Glitter 'N' Sparkle - Think Pink
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes with Monochromatic
