First Birthday Card ...........

Hi everyone, well it certainly is a hot one in here in Norfolk today!  I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.

I made this card for my mum to give to my niece who celebrated her first birthday with us whilst we were away on holiday.    This is a large 8 x 8 card and I was really pleased with how this one turned out. I used distress ink on the edges of the image and sprinkled a glittery embossing powder straight onto the distress ink and heated it. I really love the sparkly effect this gives.
