Happy Birthday Susan!

Hi everyone.  Today is my dear friend, Susan's birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!

The card above is done with Magicals and an AliExpress flower die.  I love how they turned out.  The shimmer from the Magicals is so pretty!!  I used a leftover piece for the birthday sentiment.

The background is a white embossing paste through a flourish stencil.  I only added it to the top 2/3's of the card.

That color is just gorgeous Loll! This is beautifully designed too. The embossing on white is the perfect backdrop for your die cut flower. LOVE this!

Oh poor Jessie, you do feel bad when they have to have surgery but I'm sure she will soon bounce back and in the meantime I'm sure she will get lots of cuddles. I love your card for Susan Loll, the textural flourish background is gorgeous and the die cut beautiful bright flowers and the Magicals strip with the sentiment across the card edges the embossed part perfectly. Susan will adore this! x

Awh! Poor Jessie. Her pillow matches Susan's card. The card is gorgeous and so perfect for Susan! Love the embossing paste and the flowers colored with Magicals!

Loll, that is absolutely the most perfect birthday card for me! I love the colours, the flowers, the paste background. It has pride of place on my mantelpiece with my other cards. Thank you so much!

Give sweet little Jessie a cuddle from me - she looks very sweet on her cushion with her blue neck collar, but she does look a bit sad - poor wee thing.

Gorgeous card Loll, I love the flower it's so sparkly and I know Susan will love the blue.

Poor Jessie, it won't be long before she's jumping around again :)

Stunning die cut flowers with your Magicals scrap. Love your embossed stenciled background. Such beautiful texture. Love how you stamped the sentiment on another piece of the beautiful Magicals background. TFS my friend. Give Jessie a soft pat on the head. Not fun seeing our babies in any kind of discomfort. It looks like you have her pretty comfy though. Love and Hugs..Nancy

This is an amazing card! Both beautiful smudges on flowers and banner with sentiment, as well as the embossed panel of the card. Combining these elements gave one of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. Loll, your cards are so artsy !!
I hope Jessie is already great.
hugs,
