Happy Birthday Michelle



It is Michelle at the cardgrotto's birthday today HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Michelle is such a kind generous person and always encourages everyone... her own cards are amazing and if you are reading this the chances are you have already visited her blog... but if by chance you haven't then pop over and have a look you will be amazed.
The card is very similar to one I made a few weeks ago in pink and brown and I was so happy with it I decided to make one for Michelle for her birthday.
I usually use plain white stock as the base for my cards but on this occasion I have used purple bazzil and have done faux stitching around the edges I really like this effect.
Hope the weather is better where you are it is awful here today still never mind seems like a good excuse to do some crafting.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
