A Birthday Present

My cousin Mandy is 50 today and as we are crafting buddies I wanted to make her something special. So I made this heart shaped hanging frame and birthday card. The frame is called "Live Life with a Flouish" I used chip board and cut out the heart shape frames, I painted, masked, stamped on  and distressed them. One corner on each frame has been given texture (I used a wood and nails texture technique from Sam's technique zone) I can recommend this technique it really works.
For the top frame I made a grunge flower and embossed swirl  and used corregated package painted and distressed using metalic rubs for the backing.
The centre frame I have used antique lace and silk fabric with a vintage downlaod this is machine sewed to card decorated with antique buttons
The bottom frame has DI card which has had swirls stamped on a grunge butterfly and an chipboard M that has been heat embossed and a swirl stamped into it while hot.
If you look closely I have hand written the title on to each of the frames with swirly handwriting. Also a bit of bling snuk in (I can't resist bling)
The card I made using a vintage download  machine sewed to antique lace and pretty papers, decorated with buttons and a flower also a bit of bling. Thanks for looking. XX
