Happy Birthday Friend

I finally have some cards to show over the next few days, first one uses a framelit die to emboss not cut.

Then I used my pricking template that coordinates with the framelits set to go around the inside edge of the embossed line. The sentiment is from the annual catalogue, new to me, but I love it and its nice to use a different style of sentiment stamp to the ones I usually use. The lattice stamp is gorgeous and matches the embossing folder beautifully. The flowers are one of the Sizzix dies from Stampin Up and the leaves are a little Sizzlet die. The ribbon is from the current Sale-a-bration promo and the "friends" sentiment can easily be changed for any family member....maybe Mum as its Mothers day in the uk soon. I finished off with a tiny circle punch for the centres and some pearls. The colour combo I used was Pool Party, Island Indigo and Summer Starfruits....never did I think I would like that last colour but I love it and its turning into one of my fav's !!
