Birthday Gift


Hi and Good Morning everyone, :)  Well in my part of the world, the summer has ended, and autumn fast approaches with a change in colours as well as the weather.  So todays card is a little more subtle in its hues, and uses some lovely Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch blank card base and layered MME papers and white american crafts cardstock.  All dies were cut with this card too.
 
I cut the Tiny Bubbles border and stuck on the apricot top layer panel and also used the gorgeous Cape Cod Doily behind my image.  This is so delicate and beautiful, but cuts like a dream!  My image is matted and layered onto Square Stackers, Scalloped squares and the delighful  Horizon Square Stacker
 
I used Alisons Ribbons along the bubble border, and added a small strip of ric-rac ribbon on top.  The flower was made from the quick and easy Shasta Daisy strip, held together with a pearl brad, and for a finishing touch I added a dragonfly and some pearls.
 
All dies used on this card are
 
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week where our theme is Things with Wings.
 
Have a smashing day!

Hi Alison, I would tell you this is absolutely gorgeous, and stunning, but it would be an understatement. I just love how you make your cards. They are all truly just works of art and you do such a fantastic job of it. Truly I just love this card. I think that to view your blog I will need to buy a thasorus. lol... I know I spelled that wrong, but you get the idea I am sure. We have lost our summer as well here. I am somewhat happy for the milder weather, but I know that all too soon it will be very cold and very dark for most of the days and I really don't like that. lol... I love the 14 hours of daylight in the summer and the cooler temps of the Autumn. Hmmm if only there was a way to have both. Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa G
