Autumn & a Birthday Card

There is definitely a chill in the air now so I think it's safe to say we have seen the last of the warm weather for this year. Not be long before I convince my hubby that the heating needs to be switched back on.

The silver lining is that it's also footie season so I get Saturday afternoons all to myself (does a little happy dance). Hope everyone is having a great weekend too. 

I have to go dress shopping Monday night and I am really not looking forward to it. The last dress (or even skirt for that matter) I wore was my wedding dress 17 years ago so two friends are coming along to help me. I feel really sorry for what I am going to be putting them through but they seem confident we will find something for me so who am I to burst their bubble. Perhaps I should have put 'buying a dress' on my bucket list!!!

Anyway, this is a birthday card for one of those friends. I really liked the stepper card I made last weekend and thought I would give it another go. 

I used brown card as the base and the backing paper was from the Silent Night paper pad. The flowers and butterflies were cut from the Blank Canvas paper pad. The Happy Birthday was done on the Silhouette using the new metallic pens (copper). Liquid pearls (copper) have been added to the corners and Candi to the flowers.

Hope you like this card and thank you for looking x
