Cute birthday card

I have used an 8x8in scalloped white card and matt and layered it with red card and green and white gingham card. I distressed and inked the edges before attaching them to my card. I then cut strips of the red and gingham card and distress and inked the edges before attaching them to my card. I added hessian and lace ribbon to the these strips. I have used a Lili of the Valley topper, I inked the edges before attaching it to a circle that I cut with a Tonic die. I have embellished my card with roses, berries and pearl strands and some flat backed pearls. I have die cut the tags with Sue Wilson dies, I will add a personalised sentiment to the tag.
