Have a Prima Birthday!

I really enjoy working with the Prima paper. Everything about it is absolutely beautiful. I wanted to make a really special Birthday card for a very special friend. Something that took a little longer than the usual quick cut and paste (even though I have a box full of ready made cards I always end up making another quick one the night - or minute - before!!).

The distressed edge adds to the rustic feel and the ribbon gives the whole card a little softness. The flower was a perfect match and the little charm says "Made with Love" - isn't it too gorgeous! The diamond glaze draws the eye to the angel on the paper and the butterfly highlighted is just enough to make it pop. A few pearls and beads round of the front of the card perfectly.
The envelope needed to make a statement as well as this was a major part of the presentation of the gift. I simple stamped a few images in different colours and shades purple and teal and added some pearls to the flower centres. A charm added to the flower made the perfect accent.
The cut-offs were to beautiful to waste and two quick tags were just the thing! I added these later to presents wrapped in purple and green tissue paper and they looked stunning!Hope you have true friends that appreciate you for who you are and celebrate life with you every chance you get!!

Happy scrappin'
