Embossed Birthday Wishes

Hello friends, I have heard a lot of buzzing over this embossing folder that was a freebie with Australian Simply Cards last month - and I can see why - so elegant and an instant pretty card for so many occasions.

I have cut the card base using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics B Card Creator and the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.  The Damask pattern has been highlighted using Imagine Craft Ink in Petal Pink, The sentiment that comes with the folder has also been stamped using Imagine Crafts Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. As I said - so elegant and so easy!   Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card and the bling is from Want2Scrap.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
Through the Purple Haze - Use A Die And/Or Punch
