Andrea's Card


My daughter loves a bit of purple and since the Kaiser Violet Crush was around me at the time it was perfect for her card.
I decided to use this Bella image because its still rather cute but in a grown up way. I sort of used the Papertake Weekly sketch till I realised my curved die cut it the wrong way but the principal of the sketch is there.
Since I'm so critical of my cards I could cut down the white card the image is on but I think that could be just nit picking.
I love the Sending die from Simon Says Stamps and I found the pretty birthday sentiment with the wishes on  Its your Birthday stamp set.  Foolishly I decided to emboss them with black embossing powder to help it stand out more but its not as fine as the clear which I will use next time.
The flowers are Elizabeth Craft dies and the twine is from Doodlebug.
