Here are two cards I have done one for a friends birthday and the other is part of a swap I am doing on UKS.
The above is a card I did for my friend I kept the background plain as she is not a all singing all dancing person so just added a banner and the stamped image to the card.
Here is the card I am doing as part of the SWAP on UKS I have made them all the same except the flowers are all different colours. I stamped onto glossy card and shaped it then inked the edges and used 3D foam on the back. The card is embossed with the old Script embossing folder.
