Birthday Card

I was asked to make a birthday card for a lovely friend at work by her husband - he wanted hearts, flowers, lovey dovey!!  So I decided to make a easel card for a change!!

I have used would you believe christmas paper by Dovecraft!  Some of the papers you could use all year round - very pretty and not very christmassy.  I have used my Martha Stewart punch all round the linen card and very lightly inked the edges of the papers.  A lovely golden pearl flourish was added along with some lace and flowers. 

The hearts are from Nellie Snellie die and I have added a brad so that the top heart swivel open so that a message can be written on it.  A couple of butterflies were also added.

Just hope both of them like it lol!!

Thanks for looking Polly x
