Birthday Card

Good afternoon, hope you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine!

Just added a Birthday card I made this week, It was for the same lady as my previous Birthday card
I've used a Lili of The Valley Image square which I've die cut and inked around the edges.
The sentiment was die cut the same way to match the image.

Less is More

I've made this card for the Less is More Challenge
Week 11 Acetate
This is my first entry for this challenge, so I hope it's ok!

The front panel is acetate which I've attached a flower I've made from cutting circles of printed vellum, then scrunched them up, unfolded them then attached it to the acetate with a brad through the centre,
and added a strip of ribbon to finish.
Really enjoyed making this, went through a phase of using acetate a lot!
but haven't for a long time, so was good to dig it out again.

Thanks for looking and as always all comments are extreamly welcome
