Happy Birthday Freya

Its my lovely daughter Freya's 15th birthday today
 Happy Birthday Freya! 

Poor Freya has had to go to school today and sit a biology exam so she isn't happy, hopefully she will be in a better mood when she gets home.

I just thought I would show you the card I have made for her.

I made the card using a Go Kreate XXL die and the next size down to cut the pretty grey gingham paper, which I stuck to the card before cutting and scoring to make a stepper card.

The image is a cute square from Lili of the Valley, I cut a scalloped square using my Spellbinders scalloped square die and added some silver peel off in each scallop.

I have also used a Lili of the Valley clear circle sentiment stamp which I stamped with silver ink and then stuck the image to a pink scalloped circle cut using nesties.

I have used a Cheery Lynn's fanciful flourish die and Die-namics Prima Donna petals die to create the flowers, I added irridescent glitter to them before sticking to the card with Pinflair.

I have also cut the letters out to spell her name in silver using Quickcutz alphabet dies.
