My first BD Card From Down Under


I have a TJ friend, Denise Taylor from New Zealand, who just sent me my first birthday card this year. It is so elegant and gorgeous! I hope you will click on it to see all of her detailed work on it. My birthday isn't until February 12, but I couldn't wait. Yep, Pres. Obama and I have someone in common. :-)

What doesn't show are the beautiful specs of deep bluish pink glitter on and about the stamens. The Lillies are gorgeous and she trimmed around them as you can see and mounted them separately. The White background is Cuttlebug embossed using the folder from Combo Love Language . The circle was cut using a die and then mounted on a separate background. That background was first brayered with Gesso and then embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folder Perfectly Paisley. After that it looks like she did Grid lines using a Scor-Pal or Scor-It. How lovely and then look at those beautiful rhinestones. The colors she chose are spectacular together.

I love my card, Denise! Thank you so much dear friend.

Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share! All of your comments and suggestions mean so much to me.

Wow, lucky you Shirley. This is one beautiful card and the patience Denise must have, not to mention skill with a craft knife, to cut out all those intricate little bits from around the stems.
