Happy Birthday

Hello everyone,

Today's card is for the partner of one of my husband's colleagues. He doesn't usually give her cards but asked for one so I focused on beautiful and feminine.

The card base is from Recollections. The bottom layer is Stampin' Up Baja Breeze textured with Sizzix Flowers dry embossing folder and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. The patterned paper is BasicGrey Wisteria layered on Close To My Heart Twilight. The sentiment is Gina K Fanciful Tags stamped in Baja Breeze on Whisper White. The embellishments are Multicrafts Craft Medley and Prima Say It With Pearls.

I love this card. It was really fun to craft, especially after the Rock Star series. I'm especially fond of the leaves and I thought attaching them with the Prima pearls was inspired. I do have to say however that the Prima pearls are not the easiest to remove from the backing sheet as it doesn't take much for those teeny, tiny pearls to fall away from the grouping. This is the first card I've made for the recipient and I'm hoping she'll like it.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
