Happy Birthday

I'm so bad at sending my own cards for birthdays, it is so wrong when I'm always making them, slap wrists.
Today it is one of my friends Leigh's birthday from the Aberdeen crop and yet again the card is here waiting to be posted hot of the press so to speak!
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Leigh
have a good one and if the postie is on form you should get your card tomorrow.
I decided to follow the challenge over on Less is More, keep it simple with a dash of red.


I have used Spellbinder Nestabilities lacey circle to make the flower, dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug, ribbon and leaf punch from my "local craft shop" Papercraft's Boutique, the sentiment stamp is from PI Mix and match, finishing off with a bit of bling and some Ranger stickles star dust.

Oh it's so hard to do "less is more!"
I have to keep telling myself  "step away from the card!"
Or even PUT IT DOWN!
LOL.
Anyway Leigh hope you've had a cracking day and I will try harder for next year. x
