DH's Birthday

Was on 7th November .... he usually prefers a funny shop bought card (sacrilege!) but I decided I was definitely making him one this year. 

I used K & Co Mira patterned paper - the thermographic one.  Such beautiful colours and a lustrous sheen!  The bird and branch are Stampin' Up!  and very versatile.  I covered a tag with distress inks, and used my Martha Stewart iron gate punch down the left hand side.  Some cosmic shimmer mists onto the tag and some small heart punch outs to break up the line on the tag.  The folk heart charm I've had forever and it is fine when you give a card to a person - not so easy to post!  I painted the bird and the branch directly from the bottle of my Meadow Green Glimmer Mist - shame the sparkle and sheen is not more obvious.  He seemed to like it, and it was certainly admired by the guests who came to visit.
