BD - A Gift

This week's Created By Hand challenge or Quietfire Creations is to make a birthday card. Well here it is and while making it I wanted to play with some punches, and this evolved.

I love my EK Success punches and the versatility of them. It's amazing the things you can do with them when you stop looking at them as border punches or just a shape. This particular punch has such a nice large surface area that I love embossing on. I've also used decorated papers I made eons ago and are in my tidied up stash BIG GRIN The only bad thing about this is, I cant remember how I made them... I'm only guessing.

It also uses a Quietfire Design rubber quote that I love from the Friendship Quote Marks set.

Click on card to see close ups and details etc. Enjoy
