Birthday Wishes

Today, I am sharing a card I have made for my 'spares' box.
The green pearlised card is a lot lighter in real life.
It was a fairly quick card to make. I die-cut the fancy frame in pearlised card, and glued
it to a rectangle of silver glitter card which I bought from The Works.
It's lovely card to use and I am pleased to say there was no loose glitter!

Next I cut the oval in the glitter card and the intricate oval in the pearlised card.
I glued them together and placed them on 3D foam pads to raise them up a bit.

Lastly, I die-cut a stitched banner in the glitter card, cut around it free hand
after glueing it to the green card. Added the greeting and some diamante gems. 
The dies I purchased from eBay.
