Pastel Birthday Card

The glorious weather continues so I hope you are all having a good weekend.  I've gone for pastel shades for this birthday card using a delicate frame which I find has to be removed from the die very carefully but I think it is worth the extra care needed.  It was cut twice from two colours of card so that I could re-insert the centre after stamping the sentiment.  Everything apart from the background was cut from oddments of card so this qualifies it for the Pixies Snippets challenge 130.

Dies - Deco Label from Stampin' Up embossed with Swiss Dots folder
          Spellbinders Die D-Lite Framed Floral
          Joy butterfly die
Border - Tonic border punch
Sentiment - from Stampin' Up Wetlands set

  3. Beautiful card Val, love your combination of dies, so effective when two colours are set back together. Karen bought me a set of SeeDee stamps years ago and the happy birthday sentiment one is one I use all the time:) Too nice to craft during the day now!
