Auntie Birthday card

A personalised birthday card for my sons to give my sister-in-law for her birthday.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card and then green and white gingham card from Anna Marie. I have used a topper from Hobbyhouse and attached it to a die cut red circle and a die cut tan scalloped circle. I attached a strip of red and gingham card down my card before adding a burlap and lace embellishment. I added my topper to my card. I die cut a personalised printed sentiment with a Sue Wilson banner die and cut the next size up in the set in red to mount the sentiment. I attached these banners to my card before adding various embellishments including beaded strawberries and pearl strands from Anna Marie, paper roses from my local artificial floral supplies and flat backed gems.
