Birthday Passionette

Hello there well are you excited to see the wedding on Friday? I cannot wait and I have Sky plus it just to make sure I won’t be missing it and to look back over it of course.
Last Sunday it was Tracey’s Happy Birthday, Tracey is a Passionette who lives in Northern Ireland so if you’re in need of a demo that way please let me know and I will put you in touch with her. we haven’t met yet but spoke on the phone I know one day we will get there. Tracey likes purple and her card reflected that. Here’s what I did
eggsI used the Strength and Hope set, I love this set and I love the fact that is a charity set as well, also in a different colour other than pink it looks beautiful and you realise that is so versatile.
Elegant Eggplant cardstock and matching designer paper combined with very vanilla and crumb cake.
butterfly close The butterflies have been inked in pale plum first then I have added extra colour with a Elegant Eggplant marker, the markers are the best for adding more than one colour or shade to a stamp.  I cut 2 top Note die shapes with my Big Shot and to layer them I have simply cut the tiny perforated border away.
Then I have made a lush and crumpled ribbon bow using the crumb cake seam binding.
bow close
To achieve this beautiful and rather scruffy looking ribbon treatment you simply spritz some water onto the seam binding and scrunch it in your hands, I love the effect and topped it here with a pale plum button which in turn got a bit of a champagne glass glitter treatment. My card doesn’t have a sentiment on the front as I really couldn’t make it work, the ribbon took a lot of the space and the butterflies demand nearly all of the attention so I have stamped it inside of the card, instead.
inside The greeting comes from Perfect punches set and it has been punched out with the coordinating Extra Large Oval punch then layered onto a designer paper layer punched out with the decorative Label punch.
Tracey I hope you had a special day and enjoyed it lots I also hope you loved your card.
I also want to wish Linda one of my other Passionettes a very Happy Birthday for today, I will share Linda’s card later with a bit of a story attached.
