Happy Birthday

Greetings  - it is great to be here, albeit somewhat latter than planned.

This week I have used the new release Happy Birthday image from the D'Amour Allure range of images designed by Tiffany Mills that is available  from McMahon Five

 The image was coloured using chalks and some Stickles glitter glue for accents, and then cut using a Labels 14 die.

The sentiment was stamped with orange ink and clear embossed before cut with a Lacy circle die.

The paper is from the Prima Romantique pad.  The edge was punched and Kaiser chino pearls were added for accents.

The lace was a RAK from lovely Melisa Waldorf, the ribbon some I had purchased locally and some more pearls finished the card.

The team have produced some beautiful expamples of the releases this week - feel free to visit them - the links are on my sidebar.
