Birthday Card

I had to make a quick card because I had missed a friend's birthday

I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with green card and gingham card.

I distressed all the edges before attaching it to my card.

My friend is a keen gardener so I used this image from a Hunkydory little book.

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a scalloped circle die from a nesting set and then cut a green scalloped circle with the next size die in the nesting set to mount the sentiment.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
