Aimee's Birthday Card

About an hour before we had to leave to go to niece Aimee's 18th birthday dinner I decided that the flowers on her card really didn't look "right"
So I ripped them off and added in some Primas from Creative Treasures and layered them up differently. I think it looks a bit better in the second photo - but still not totally happy with it. By then it was too late to do anything else though!
The background "stuff" is actually flocked sticky backed plastic from Wilkinson's -- yes, really! The lovely Rosie discovered it and gave me some pieces when we met the other week (thanks Rosie...). I thought it would be just the thing for an 19th card. The frame is also covered with this stuff, but in the black on black version. Rosie said they had a black on red roll too.
bet you'll all be dashing off to Wilko's now to see if its still availalbe!

The words and numbers are Robo cut, glittered then covered with Glossy Accents.

Aimee loved it, thank goodness. Next time I'll show the photos of the Accordion Photo Album I made to go along with her main present.

Another dinky little message.....

Wow Kathy gorgeous card so classy and what a great idea of sticky back I'll be of to Wilko's this weekend, if ours sell it, we have quite a small one and it doesn't stock everything. But brill card.
