Summer Celebration

Hi everyone, Happy belated New Year to you all.

To start 2014, I have made a Birthday card "Summer Celebration" for a very Special person ME!

As my birthday was the 20th Jan I thought I would treat myself and use my favorite Maja Design Sofiero Strolling down the Rose Path DP for a card.

I've used the Star template from Sandra's Scrapshop. I love the pinky/mauve colours in the DP so I've inked everything with Versa Color Lilac to start with then embossed the centre part of the smaller star with Couture creations Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I had to have Magnolia Tilda with Big Ribbon Bow to sit on the Star (cut out by hand, still haven't mastered cutting stamps with my Silhouette Cameo yet!!) along with Magnolia Doohickeys Dragonflies, La-La Land Heart Fence and Joy crafts Butterfly strip. The leaves are made with Martha Stewart Fern punch with a lilac flower from Kaisercraft, the centre ribbon with pearl I fashioned from my stash, the sentiment is from my stash too.  I was really pleased with the way it turned out, I hope you it!

Until next time, happy crafting.. hugs
