Happy Birthday To You & A Yay!

Hello there, today I have a super quick card to share with you. It didn't take long to make but I really like it. I took the 'happy birthday to you' sentiment from the ME Make A Wish set and stamped it on to a panel of white CS that had been cut with the rectangle die from the ME Femme Frames die set.

I stamped the sentiment and the stars with Versamark ink and then white heat embossed. I then went over the panel in various shades of blue TH Distress Inks and popped it up on the card base with foam tape. I think I am going to make a few more of these in various colours!

I apologise for the lateness of this post today, I haven't been feeling well all week unfortunately. A couple of days ago Dawn wrote on my FB page saying that I was mentioned as Blog of the Month in the new July Issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine (thank you so much for letting me know!). I got the issue today and thought I would show you ...
It has really put a smile on my face! Thank you Cardmaking & Papercraft Magazine! :) Thanks so much for visiting me today. Hope you are having a lovely day!

  14. Hi Michelle, hope you're feeling better soon. I just wondered where you buy your scotch foam tape from if you can share that. I just love the dimensional look of your cards but realise that it's quite expensive to get that look.
