Bev's Birthday Card

Today is my lovely and special daughter-in-law's birthday. Happy Birthday Bev. She will be returning later today from a 'hen' weekend to have dinner with us all (that includes my very lovely daughter Maddie, my super son Ben and special grand-daughters Becca, Ella and Maddison, oh and I mustn't forget my super-star hubby Ken).

I have used pink in this card as it is Bev's favourite colour and kept it fairly simple and clean - that is compared to some of my recent distressed examples. The rose paper is from a CD by Papercraft World and the sentiments are pre-printed and foiled. I used a swirl stamp by Anna Griffin and heat embossed it using a sparkly embossing powder, I then embellished over it. The small black mounts have been edged with MS Tourmaline glitter glue and the silver mount is edged with Star Dust Stickles. Some beads, tiny hearts, ribbon, flowers and gem stickers finish it off.
Contrasted with the black I think it looks quite good. Enjoy.
Luv Bxxx
