Champagne Thomas!

I need loads of birthday cards this month...so I made a couple at the weekend. This one uses 'Champagne Thomas' by Lili of the Valley, and papers form the 'Wild Asparagus' collection by My Mind's Eye. I distressed the edges, and added faux stitching using my Cutterbee Bug and a white gel pen. I used one of my Cuttlebug 'Just My Type' folders, which I haven't used in ages, on the strip across the centre, then sanded the raised area to reveal the white core of the paper. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts, and the flowers are by Prima.
