Birthdays at the moment are like buses. We have lots in our family in September including three of our own children. This card is for the husband of a second niece (the sister of yesterday's post) and there is a new baby in this family also, so they are not going to have much time to relax!
I chose another Lili of the Valley image and this one is called 'happy times' which I thought was rather appropriate. I coloured it using Promarkers and used distress ink round the edges while it was still in the die. I matted it onto silver mirri card which had been cut out using a Spellbinders classic scalloped circle die.
The newspaper backgound paper was also matted onto silver mirri before being matted onto white card. The sentiment is a peel off attached to white card which has been inked using distress ink, again while still in the die and then matted onto silver mirri card which was cut out using a Spellbinders classic scalloped rectangle die.
