Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and are refreshed for another week. I was thrilled to have this pink and brown card showcased over at Less is More this week and would like to thank Mandi and Chrissie for their kindness. I have a fondness for pink and brown together and made this card a while ago but didn't get round to posting it.

I used a textured embossing panel for the large pink background but experimented a bit with the small circle and one of those anywhere hole punches that you have to hammer to get the hole. For this I just pressed it without hammering and it gave little embossed circles, and I then stitched the butterfly onto it. The LIM challenge this week is to use ovals and I hope to get time to play along at some point this week. I've got to dash now because it is my birthday on Wednesday and a friend is giving me an early birthday treat of a manicure followed by afternoon tea at Ness Gardens, so this lucky girl needs to jump into the shower..

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Hugs
