Hello Friend

Hello everyone.  Hope you are all well today.  We have some lovely spring like weather here - hope it's nicer wherever you are.

I made this card for a friend who I am sending a late birthday present too.  I sent her a card on time but didn't manage to get to the PO to post her present.

I used dies that were in last months Die Cut Essentials magazine and followed a really helpful tutorial, in the mag, on making this.  I chose to go with patterned papers, gems and a red/pink colour scheme as I do like to add my own design to any tutorials that I follow.  This was a lot of fun to make and will do this again.
