Patrick's Birthday Card

Well here's my last posting in 2013 - it's a card for our dear friend Patrick, 
who you may recall had meningitis last year,  and is consequently blind.
I tried to put some texture and depth on this different shaped flip card - as he wont be able to see it.

This super three circle flip card die is one that Barry bought me for Christmas.
The colour combination is Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla
The sentiment was computer generated the  the circles die cut.
the side panel was die cut then stamped using Creative Elements stamp set.
The borders were embossed using the Textured Impressions Delicate Designs embossing folder, 
and the stars were simply punched then stuck on.
We are going to go see him tomorrow and join him for a birthday drink.
Happy Birthday Patrick!!
