My DT card for Forever Friends Embossing challenge

Wow how quickly the last fortnight had gone, we have had lots of family celebrations in the last week and time has flown by, its also my daughter Hayleys 21st Birthday today too.
Happy Birthday Hayley!

Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at 
Our challenge this fortnight is 
heat or dried, its upto you

We are sponsored by 


I started by making a triple tiered easel card using Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies. 
I have also used three different embossing folders, one for each tier.
There are various tutorials out there in blogland for these but if you want to try one I have a link 

The image I have used is by our lovely sponsor Bugaboo, its called Clyde Birthday which I have coloured using  the following Copics W1, W2, G94 and BG07. 

I have also used a Spellbinders Labels 10 die, a Die-namics button die with blue and white bakers twine threaded through and tied into a bow.

The letters and number 6 have been die cut using my Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet dies.
