Another birthday card

What is it with birthdays??? They seem like buses at the moment. Tomorrow is Karen's birthday, thought it was today which is why I appear so organised. Had an idea in my head which ended up looking like this:

Karen's card

Okay, so it's not what I planned at all. At least I know she'll like the colours. I used 2 stamps from the Clockworks stamp set. the large one was stamped onto a white background in lucky limeade, wiseria wonder, old olice and perfect plum. The smaller stamp in rich razzleberry. Over that is a white piece of card die cut with one of the Apothecary Accent dies. On top of all this is vellum stamped with 2 stamps from (so glad this set has appeared in the main catalogue after disappearing at the end on the summer mini!), The words have been embossed with and the vellum attached with lucky limeade designer brads. the base card is wisteria wonder which has 2 lines scored above and below the stamped area, so easy with the simply scored board. The vellum softems the bright colours a little.

Despite being organised, I then lost the card so Karen is the proud owner of an empty envelope! It's now turned up and in the post.
