I've long admired the accordian fold flowers that many of the bloggers use for their card embellishments. In fact, it's one of the reasons I purchased the Scor-Pal; it's so much easier to score and fold when using this tool. A good friend of mine is celebrating a birthday in August and I thought she would enjoy receiving this card; it was made with her in mind because she has such a happy attitude towards life.
Why is it when looking at a card, after photographing it, all the little imperfections show up? The ribbon knot looked good when it was tied; now it looks frayed...darn! Oh well, my friend probably won't notice it...let's hope she doesn't...haha!
Recently purchased a birthday candle border punch and it's great for embellishing cards with a birthday theme. The dp was purchased at Michael's some time ago and the last time I was checking out their paper section, there wasn't anymore of this very bright and cheerful dp. A Cuttlebug die was used for the Make A Wish sentiment as well as SU's birthday circle sentiment used for the flower center. SU's photo corner punch was also used to balance the card's appearance, or so I think it does :-D
