I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Hubby's birthday card

This is card I made for my hubby's birthday tomorrow.  I decided to set myself a challenge of using my scraps.

As my hubby is not really a "card person" I wanted to keep it very simple.  I made a large banner and a thinner one underneath and made a rosette from scallop and circle punches.  A little bit of faux stitching onto the edges and dots to embellish.

Card used is Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla with scrap of retire neutrals DSP.  The stamp is a retired Birthday Wishes set stamped in Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip ink and punches are 1" circle, 1.25" scallop circle, 1.75" circle & 2 3/8" scallop circle all from STAMPIN' UP!
