Happy Birthday Jill!

Today is a very special day :), its our lovely friend Jill, of Cardinal Colours, here is hoping you have a very special day Jill and an extra special weekend ;)

Here is the card I made for Jill, hope she likes it :)
After seeing these fancy edged circles on a few blogs I really wanted to have a try at making them myself, I was pretty sure I knew how to and had a play( which worked :D ) and I also scouted about and found various instructions all shown the same way. Basically all you do is cut whatever circle size you want and then go all around the edge with a corner punch ( preferably a Martha Stewart one) being careful how you line them up and 'Voila'!! No big secret, no hard job, but you get some really lovely page embellies to use. So I just made a small version and created this card.

I then just added some blossoms, bling, punched leaves, ribbon, a glass pebble and a sentiment...oh yes and a butterfly that I Stickled and then sprayed the whole card with some Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle. I popped some silicon under the butterflies wings to make them stand up
So....once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL......hope its a good one.......Lots Of Love Anita...xxxx
