Victorian Birthday Card






I can hardly believe it is just over 2 weeks since I posted anything on my blog, been too busy!!! I spent a lot of time wondering what type of card to make for a friend and finally settled on this lovely rose image and papers from Joanna Sheen's Cardmakers Year CD. My first thought was to make a flower shop with the Helping Hands window template but I have had lots of cards to make and wasn't feeling brave enough to attempt using the template for the first time. I hope it will turn out to be easier than it sounds fingers crossed. I used the Keepsake Illusion board to make the letters inside the card and the bow on the back, the backing paper behind the rose image is parchment put through the Cuttlebug using the script embossing folder.
