Blue Birthday

At last...a non-Christmas card! I have a birthday card to share today, using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps 'Rainin' Daisies'...although I ashamed to say it hadn't seen ink in a while. I've paired it with some gorgeous Heidi Grace papers that I picked up in TK Maxx for the bargainous price of £2.99 for a pad of 24 double-sided 12x12 sheets! I used my Cuttlebug 'Flower Fantasy' to emboss one of the papers, sanding the surface to reveal the white core. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts, and I used my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamond' punch along the edge of the embossed panel.

Challenges for this card:
