Another birthday card........ Happy Birthday Val

After a fairly hectic few weeks I spent yesterday trying to clear up my craft room which looked like the proverbial had hit it!!!  lol  So, with a semblance of normal I can now see the wood for the trees and can get back to some making some Christmas cards which I haven't started yet :o(  I've piled up all my stock from Saturday in a bedroom as I have another "do" in a couple of weeks time, so it's not worth unpacking and putting away only to get it all out again.

So today is my sister Val's birthday and I thought I'd share with you the card I made for her.

I have used the Art Deco stamps and papers from Papermania again, this time using the Art Deco Flapper stamp set, matching papers and a gift envelope which I put my sentiment into.  I made a criss cross card and slipped the main image piece inside (you can see that on the second photo).  The sentiment and martini glass & umbrella are from the same stamp set.  I used the matching embossing folder on a piece of holographic silver card and I glittered the Flapper and decoupaged her feather wrap to give a bit of dimension.  Flowers, lace and ribbon are from my stash.

Pop on over to Val's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday.

Happy crafting.
