Happy Birthday

Good morning all.

Managed to fit some crafting in yesterday, my mojo still wasn't working with the die cuts left out from Tuesday so I changed tack and got another of my new dies out and made a card that does exactly what it says on the tin!

The background die is from Poppy Stamps. I've cut the die from a snippet of thin white card cut to A2 size. I then attached double sided stickly tape to the back of the piece and inlaid some of the words which I'd cut from some snippets of cerise pink  pearlised card. The rest of the words were then filled with silver glitter (note to self please use the static duster thing first next time!). Both me and the craft room are sparkling like Christmas fairies now! I backed the piece with another snippet of thin white card and mounted to the grey card base with foam tape.
I was going to add some bling but decided it had enough sparkle already.

This is going to be a go to die...I love the result and of course you end up with lots of useful die cut sentiments ready for another card.
