Firstly, sorry in advance for the difference in colour of the purple on these photos. I used the same sheet of purple card to die cut all the purple elements. 'The camera never lies' is a myth!
I used a Sizzix Circle Flip-its set of dies, which cuts out the basic card shape and the pieces to decorate it. I cut out the purple pieces before embossing them using a Cuttlebug 'Number Collage' embossing folder. I learnt from my mistake a few days ago, when I embossed first and then die cut, squashing the embossing flat! The Happy Birthday is a freebie stamp, stamped with Versafine 'Onyx' and the 'Age is only a Number' is computer generated. I wish I could work out how to get text into a circle on my computer. I think my version of Word is probably too old!
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
