Birthday Boy !

Here is the card I made recently for my DH's birthday. I printed off a page of Autumn Leaves backing paper from the House Mouse Inserts CD (from Joanna Sheen).  I then printed the letters for Happy Birthday and the Relax sentiment onto this sheet. The banner was cut by hand which was a little fiddly but not too bad.

Playing with my new goodies

I finally managed to get motivated and had a little play with some new goodies - hope you like the finished result. This card is for a family member celebrating their 70th birthday at the weekend. We are invited to the party!  I used Bazzill Bling purple card to mount the birds/cage on and had to use the reverse as it was the only dark purple that I had.

The heart shapes are from the smaller birdcage die in the Bird Sanctuary Shapeabilities set.
