Happy Birthday

Today I'm sharing a card mainly made using die cutting. I really love creating lacy and intricate cards using die cuts - it can be so much fun building up all the pretty shapes to create a really detailed card.
 I used lilac Centura Pearl card and Creative Expressions icicle pearl card to give a lovely pearly effect. The border dies used are by Die'Sire and came free with an old issue of Crafter's Inspiration magazine. The dies used to create the focal element are Sue Wilson's Bermuda dies, Sue Wilson's Austrian border, corner and tag dies and Sara's Signature Shabby Chic Collection doily die. The sentiment is a Die'Sire die that I've cut several times (3 I think it was) and layered them together to create depth. I added some Tonic Studios Nuvo white pearl drops to finish. The finished card measures 5" x7".
