Sewing Themed Birthday Card

Good morning.  I hope you are well today.  I have a card to share that I made for my sister-in-law   It was her birthday yesterday so it's safe to share this now.

She loves sewing and needlework so that was the theme for this card.

I have used:
Distress oxide blended background using Faded Jeans, Salvaged Patina and Kitsch Flamingo.
I have sewn a piece of acetate on top to create a pocket.  I don't think I have ever sewn as straight as that...
 I have put sequins, paper cotton reels and paper buttons inside the acetate pocket.  
With my cricut I have print and cut a sewing machine (sewing machine, cotton reels and buttons are part of a sewing clipart collection from AnneIllustration over on Etsy)
I created and cut the word birthday three times out of white card using my cricut and then glued the cuts together. I also created an offset of birthday, cut this from vellum and layered this underneath.
The white embossed 'Wishing you a Happy' is from the Woodware Birthday Strips stamp set.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

See you soon x

Crafty Calendar June Challenge - All Dressed Up Summer Bird Card

Good morning and a happy jubilee weekend to you if you are in the UK.   I'm enjoying the long weekend, we've had some nice weather the last couple of days but it's a bit overcast at the moment, hopefully it will brighten up soon for any jubilee celebrations that are happening today.

It is the first Saturday in June so we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar and the theme this month is

When my computer told me on the 31 May that it was World Parrot Day (didn't even know that that was a thing) I felt a parrot themed card was in order.

For my card I have used:
Summer Bird by All Dressed Up Stamps coloured with copics and polychromos pencils.
I die-cut some flowers and coloured those with copics and added them to the image with some clear crystal dewdrop embellishments.
The background is two toner sheets from the Gina K Designs Vibrant Vines foil-mates pack that have been foiled with Deco Foil Lime Green and Summer Rainbow.
