Happy Birthday

Today's card is inspired by no challenge but is inspired by my younger daughter. It was her birthday yesterday. You'd think that New Year's Eve would be a great day to have a birthday but it hasn't turned out that way. Friends are often away on summer holiday and everyone's having a party anyway.

So I gave extra special thought to her card. She likes to craft and has her own beautiful aesthetic. She likes textures. She loves the look of Kraft card. She loves geometrics. She can't get enough of copper accents. So she's my inspiration today with this sneak peek from the almost-here Occasions catalogue.

The bundle is called Dear Doily. I've used some of the stamps to copper emboss the background. Aren't they lovely?

The rather ornate circular frame and the Merry Merlot lacy strip are both from the die set. The striking flower and coordinating die are also part of the set. The only thing not from the bundle is the 'Happy Birthday' which comes from Perennial Birthday.

I'm happy to say that she liked it and it went well with the little gift bag for earrings that I made to go with it - but forgot to photograph.
