Female Birthday Card

Today, I have a birthday card to share with you that I recently made for a friend.
This is the first time I have used the embossing folder which was one of my purchases
at the Ally Pally craft show in April. It's so pretty and is one I think I'll be using a lot.

I started by first cutting the circular die from the base card, and stamping the sentiment,
which is two from a set. Then using two dies taped together I made the lilac frame.
Next I placed them all together and taped them back into the aperture, added
the bird and the flowers.
The single bird has been snipped from a branch of five birds.

The products I have used are:-
Stitched semi circle - purchased from eBay
Sentiment stamps - purchased from eBay
Bird - purchased from eBay
Leanne Creatif Embossing Folder - Little Flowers
Woodware punch - Fern
Xcut Punch - Small Daisy
