Birthday Wishes

Hello friends

This is a very poor imitation of a card made by Christina from  Card Making Magic. I have tried to put in a link but blogger is not co-operating at the moment. I shall try again later.

I used ivory and lavender card stock and Spellbinders Venetian Accents and Motifs. The ribbon and gems are from my stash and the small rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

There is definitely something missing from this card but I can't quite put my finger on it.  (It all seems rather bland. Maybe it needs to be matted again onto lavender, or maybe the mask and sentiment die should be in lavender? That would probably work better. Anyway I'll have to re-think it because I'm not happy with it.

Have a good day everybody.

Love and hugs from Christine xx


  1. Hi Christine, the card is beautiful as it is, maybe if the background was embossed you would feel better about it, but I say it lovely like this.

  2. Hi Christine, this is a beautiful card! So often we are not happy with our own cards for some reason or another..don't do what I did yesterday - I wasn't happy, thought the card needed another element of stamping and not 'paying attention' I totally ruined it! Happy crafting, Carole Z X

  3. Hallo Christine

  6. There's nothing more needed on your card, its just great as it is.


  7. Hi Christine,
    love this card and colours used. It is so pretty and the blue reminds me of wedgwood. I had trouble with blogger the other day, and someone said they had trouble commenting too. Also Linda Burrows left a comment on my card yesterday, but it never appeared in the comments list.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  8. I can't see that this beautiful creation needs anything more
    This is gorgeous Christine and although I have loads of stamps I only own one set of Spellbinders and never use that :) loving your work

  12. Hi Christine, as everyone else has said it's a beautiful card and the colours blend so well. Like Carole Z commented I have spoiled so many cards thinking they needed a little extra.

  16. Hi Christine - well you know my favourite colour is purple so I'm a fan of this card already!!! What about a feather or something on the mask??? Then again that might be a bit OTT -lol. To be honest though, I like this one as it is. I love those dies - my favourite border!

    Hugs Sue Pxxx

  17. Good Evening Christine,
    Beautiful card, great colours and fantastic use of your Dies.
    Your card is fine, you know what they say "Less is More"
    I often spoil a card by adding things when I should just leave it alone.
