Another Birthday Card

Hello everyone.  I hope you are safe and well after today's awful weather?  It wasn't too bad where I live and we are lucky enough to still have the house and garden intact.

This is another card I made for one of the birthday swaps I am in over at Craft Telly Forum.  This one was made for a member who is lucky enough to be flying off to New York on her birthday so I think I can post it safely as she will be knee deep in preparation for her trip on Thursday.  So, happy birthday for Thursday, Jenty, and I hope you have a fabulous trip!

Anyway, without further ado, here is the card:


The stamp is a Travilla cling on rubber stamp of Marilyn Monroe which I bought off the infamous auction site. I coloured the image with a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen and then highlighted with Art Institute Crystal Clear glitter.  The pearlescent purple card was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards, layered up with circles cut with my nesties.  The flowers are made from a punch I've had for years with a clear gem popped in the centre for added bling.  It was really difficult to photograph as the silver mirror card and purple pearlescent card reflected badly, but hopefully you can see the finished card well enough.

Hope you all have a good week and the weather improves.

Love,
Beth. xxx
