Happy 75th Birthday!

Today's card is one I made for my card-making friend who celebrated
her 75th birthday on Monday.
She loves gardening, so I thought this decoupage was perfect for her.
I started by scoring lines on the lower half of the card to add some texture,
embossed a strip of co-ordinating coloured card for the centre, and added
some peel-off borders to decorate the edge.
I mat and layered the decoupage picture, created the sentiment on the computer,
then added a little bit of bling to the oval card.

The products I have used are:-
La Pashe decoupage - Bloomin' Lovely
Couture Creations A4 Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Spellbinders Nestabilities- Ovals and Scalloped Ovals
Hougie Board
Sentiment is computer generated.
