Birthday Passionette

Hello there hope you had a good weekend, our trip to London was FAB sadly we were so engrossed in our activities I forgot to take any pictures, the only ones I have are on a double decker bus and one at the Champagne and Sea food bar in Selfridges LOL.
On Saturday Dawn one of my lovely Passionette celebrated her Happy Birthday and this is the card I made her. She maybe didn't get it till Monday as I only posted it Saturday morning before leaving for London, sorry hun.
Dawn is such a lovely person and she loves pinks, so I have used a combo of Regal Rose, Crumb Cake and Basic Black. The stamp set I have used is one of my most loved sets from the mini catalogue it is called Strength and Hope and I like it even more because is a charity set, buy this set and support the Breast Cancer charity (SU are donating £1 from every set sold). I love butterflies and this one in this set has such a pretty shape to it.  I simply stamped them in Regal Rose ink and cut them out then a string of pearls were added to the bodies.
Here’s a close up
Have you spotted the gorgeous main panel? I love this effect, you simply ink the embossing folder with a ink of your choice using the brayer then you add your card and crank it through the Big Shot, voila instant aged panel very pretty, especially when topped with more little pearls. The sentiment a banner made with the Curly Cute set, this set is one of my faves, I love it !!
I have added a double bow made with the seam binding and will show you that in a video very soon.
Dawn I hope you had a lovely day my sweet and hope you liked the card.
Right off I go to bed I am bit tired tonight, till next time thank you for visiting and big hugs xxx
