Happy 40th!

Hi and a Happy Bank Holiday to you!

It's a Friend's 40th Birthday very soon lol! I have made this card and thought I might take the theme of a few challenges too!

The papers are from LLB collection. I have painted the chipboard heart with eggplant paint. I have then used a butterfly stencil and sprayed over with misters.

I have used a really cute Tilda stamp which is new (for my birthday). I have used lots of flowers which I brought on Friday. I have attached the two sides of the heart with some ribbons.

The Message reads "It's your day......" and when opened to the hidden message to read "Happy Birthday".

The Colours I have used are what I consider hot and spicy and therefore the hot reminds me of the Summer along with the flowers.

The backing papers are stamped at the edge with the faux stitches, which is a Tim Holtz stamp.
