A Birthday card for Anonymous

A blogging friend recently had a birthday, I found out almost by accident and promised to keep it under wraps. Couldn't let it go by without sending a card though :)

I used:

- A6 white card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Flower  Field' set

- SU 'Rose Red' card stock, embossed using Crafts Too's 'Scrollwork Frame' embossing folder

- sentiment inside the card was already printed and die cut by Craftwork Cards

- and I made the envelope using SU's patterned card in 'Rose Red' and my Crafter's Companion Enveloper Pro board

You know who you are but my lips are sealed - hope you had a lovely day!!! xxxx

I love that card Di, especially the line of lacy stuff down the side of the flower pic, it really adds to the oval effect of prettiness!
