Happy 40th Birthday

Morning everyone,

Okay, so it's Saturday and someone special's birthday today - so I'm back with the card :) To celebrate her big 4-0, she's having a party this evening with the theme of black and white, so I thought I'd make a card to compliment her colour scheme and just had to open up my new Speciality Papers just for her. Below is the card I made that she hopefully will receive this morning.

Speciality Paper - Groom Card

Close Up - Sparkly Numbers

These numbers have been stamped with the En Francais background stamp and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. The edges have been edged with the 2-Way Glue Pen and covered with Dazzling Diamonds.

Close Up - Champagne Glasses

These champagne glasses have been stamped with a stamp from the Cheers To You set of 6 stamps and heat embossed with Silver embossing powder. The glasses have been filled with Dazzling Diamonds and Crystal Effects have been used to give a glistening 3D effect.

Stamps: Cheers To You, En Francais Background Stamp.
