Fab's Birthday card

10"X8" card, I spritz the whole of the green backing paper with Gold Cosmic Shimmer and matted it with Gold mirror card. inked around the edge and then glued the whole thing to the base card. (I'm afraid the cosmic shimmer and edge inking didn't photo very well)

The topper was made using Dawn Bibby's tree stamp which is much too nice just to be used at Xmas,  available from her shop click here

I embossed the inked image in Gold embossing powder and added some owl stickers (bought at Paperchase)
Then I stamped the swirls on a strip of card and embossed that too in Gold, after adding some Promarker coloured flowers I topped and tailed it with some ribbon, stamped the sentiment and added some gems.

Thank you for looking
