Cardmaking and crafts

My main craft love is cardmaking however there will be bits and bobs scattered around that are non-cardmaking, maybe a bit of baking, embroidery, knitting - whatever takes my fancy on the day

Happy birthday Lisa

It's my niece's 22nd birthday on Tuesday so I thought I'd double up making her birthday card with a couple of challenges.  I have created an aperture card using my cuttlebug and stamped some flowers and a message on the inside.  The border is created using a docrafts border punch and adding some ribbon and gems.  I also die cut a mariane die in both black and white to give it 2 layers and used black stickles glue to highlight the body and the centres of the flowers on the inside.

I am entering this card into the cas-ualfridays challenge which is black and white (clean and simple) and also in the mymumscraftshopchallenges which is for favourite colour combos.

Thanks for looking.
