Janice's Birthday

Tomorrow is my sister-in-law Janice's birthday.
Here's the card that I have made for her.

Now Janice loves red, so the colour was easy to choose - Real Red!!
I haven't done a red on red card before, so was anxious as to the result.
I needn't have worried as it turned out fine.
I embossed the second layer of red card with the Mosaic Embossing Folder.
Once again I have used the Gingham Wheel - it's proving to be a favourite.
I also used the Needlepoint Border Textured Impressions Embossing folder
I die cut the initial and stuck it onto an Artisan Label punched shape.
The flower was made using the fabulous flower mold and Simply Pressed Clay-
these are so simple to make - Lexie (age 6) has made quite a few already!
The leaves were punched with the Bird Builder punch.
A few Basic Rhinestone embellishments and job done!
Happy Birthday for tomorrow Janice.
