Birthday Wish

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all well, lots of hugs to those who don't.

Its my Sisters birthday today so I wish her a very Happy Day, she lives in France so no doubt shes arranged a day out somewhere with friends.

Today's post is not her Birthday card but one I did a while ago  and have not got round to putting it on here as I was not 'that' happy about it but I thought why waste all the time making it and not showing it lol!!

I started with my base card, this was one sheet of A4 Leather Look Cream card folded in half, along the bottom I scored it to add some interest.

I cut to size a piece of Black card and stenciled through the  wood grain mask using Copper metallic paint. On top of this I layered some card I had distressed with Forest Moss then another piece of card I distressed with Peacock Feathers and Abandoned Coral.

In two corners I added some modeling paste through a metal grid and left to dry.

In the center I placed half a doily that I had distressed with Forest Moss and stamped the word 'WISH' in the middle using Vintage Photo, on top of these layers I stamped the little bird and the gargoyle.

I found some bunting triangles so I placed them on top and added the letters to say 'Birthday'. Using modelling clay I made a frame and heat embossed it with Aged Aqua embossing enamel, In the center I added an old photo of a Family that I had printed of the internet.

I die cut a branch and some leaves, placed them around the frame but positioning the branch so it was under the bird, then added some tiny flowers either side of the frame after I had added some Diamond Snow to the petals.

To finish the card I added dots of glue around the dried paste circles and sprinkled some tiny beads over the top.
