My First Eclipse Card

I have seen so many lovely eclipse cards on various blogs and Pinterest just recently, that I
thought I'd have a go at making one. I also found some good tutorials on YouTube.
I've started small for my first card, as the alphabet dies I have used are only
1 inch/25mms high, whereas most cards I have viewed have been made with larger dies.
I have also kept it simple in design, but will certainly be trying some more in the
future and use my embossing folders too. I really love the effect the raised letters give.
The products I have used are:-
Fiskars Floral stamp set
Alphabet dies - Purchased from eBay
Presscut - Happy Birthday

Challenges entered:-
Allsorts Challenge - Something New (Technique)
Crafter's Castle - Anything Goes
