Happy 40th Birthday

Hi everyone

I'm here to share a card I made for a friend for their recent 40th birthday.
The lady in question adores cats so I just had to use this Helz Cuppleditch stamp
'Lazy Days'...

It's an 8x8 card. I've coloured using Copics and matted with black card using my Perfect Layers mini rulers at 1/16th". There's no way I could get them this even using my trimmer or by eye. I've used some of my new dies which my lovely hubby bought for my birthday including the bunting, hearts and butterfly flourish. 

There's a layer between the image and the yellow spotty layer which is acetate. I've embossed it and then edged it with guilding flakes so it shows up more...still not easy to show in a photo though. I've finished off with some ribbon from my stash, a small tag and self adhesive pearls...oh, I nearly forgot the self adhesive lace 'Happy Birthday' strip down the edge of the spotty panel...

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon. I've been busy crafting but can't share with you just yet. Hopefully I'll get chance to do some 'Just because I can' cards very soon.
Happy crafting
Hugs Helen xx
