Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  I was having a play with Pixie Powders and cling film for this card.  I added Purple Violet, Rich Gold and Aubergine Pixie Powders to a piece of coconut white card.  I spritzed it liberally with water then covered it with cling film and scrunched it create winkles in the cling film.  I allowed it to dry like this then removed the cling film to reveal the pattern in the background.  I used the Alice die to die cut it and kept the fall away pieces from it.  I cut the die again out of coconut white card and attached it to a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive backing on it.  I used the fall away pieces and paper pieced them back into the grid.  I used the Zigzag Squares embossing folder and embossed a piece of coconut white card as a background.  I attached the Alice die to it with foam.  Next I cut the top layer of the Roselyn die in white.  I used an extra bit of the pixie powdered background and cut the second layer of the Roselyn out of it.  I glued the two pieces of the Roselyn die together and added a white backing to it.  I added it with foam in a diamond orientation to the centre of the Alice die.  I cut the centre of the Roselyn in white and layered it up then cut the Happy Birthday out of the pixie powder card.  I added it to a white shadow then added it with foam to the centre.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  6 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x
