Bonjour - Happy Birthday

Here is a card I have made using a Crafter's Companion 3D embossing folder I "HAD" to have after my crafty friend Ria used it.  The pre-coloured image with a background is from The Paper Shelter and is called "French Brunch".  I printed the image off twice so I could decoupage up the image.

I put a piece of paper from a The Works paper pad through the Crafter's Companion "Sara Signature Parisian 3D embossing folder".  I then used Imagination Crafts Starlight Wax in Bronze and White Gold and coloured over the image very lightly with a dry baby wipe.

After I had put the embossing folder and topper on the backing paper from my stash I thought it needed something else before I stuck onto the card.  Before last year I would never have considered stamping anything on in case it stamped wrong and ruined my page.  Out came my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform and I used a swirly Tim Holtz design stamp for two corners and I also used a "Happy Birthday" stamp and stamped on the edge of the image.  It's such a simple device, if you know what I mean, but it has certainly made me use more stamps than ever before on cards.

I have finished the card off wish some flowers given to me by a friend which I have edged in pink and brown to tone in with the card.
