A floral birthday

Hey there – happy weekend-eve!  Can’t tell you how pleased I am that it’s Friday – what a week!! I’m sharing a card with more Fresh Cut Florals today paired with a fabulous sentiment from Clearly Besotted’s Say It in Style set.  Once again my skill at photographing gold embossing has let me down – need some tips!!

This card was inspired by the 2nd challenge over at The Card Concept…. Use Texture.  I used my MS mini scoreboard again to create the debossed lines on my panel and then brayered over it to highlight them.  Now – is this Clean and Layered or is it bordering on Shabby Chic??  Just not sure but I’m sure it’s one of them!!


Right, I’m off to get myself a nice warm cuppa – it’s FREEZING here at the moment!

Have a lovely evening where ever you are in the world xxx

    I can see you are the queen of clean and pretty! (I know I’m not helping by ‘creating’ another style! lol! I’m not that good at slotting everyone in either!) Love the soft colours and I LOVE that birthday sentiment – so elegant in gold! Thanks so much for joining us at the Card Concept!
