Happy Birthday To You!

Morning friends, hope you're all well.
Oh my, where on earth did May go? I probably say it too often but time really
does seem to go much faster the older I'm getting. Won't be too long before
all we're talking about is........Christmas!! Oooh, I can't wait.......better
get my thinking cap on for this year's Little Book of Christmas!
But before that I  have a birthday card topper to share....another from one of 
those die cut booklets with a few of my own bits & pieces added in.
I started with a black card base, added the striped paper.....another black card
& paper layer then the circular sentiment. The floral corners are 3 layers of
decoupage.....aren't they pretty? Then I finished with a die cut banner, the
birthday words & a couple faux gems......job done!
Rightio, lots to do today before I can go in the craft room so I better get
a move on. Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to have a lovely day.
