A birthday card for Gran!

Well I have been a bit hit and miss with posts lately as I warned I would be because I am packing and getting ready to move home in 5 weeks!! Gosh the time is flying past!  I have only been posting DT cards for the last week or so, but it is my gran's birthday on Sunday, so I have had to make her Birthday card and here it is :o)

No DP's just a dotty embossing folder and purple and black card, the 2 round dies are from a marianne creatables die cut set that I have cut and embossed

Side inside view

The butterfly is a die from Joy Crafts and I have added some mini gems

The flower is a marianne creatables die cut, and the leaf swirls are another joy craft die

the Gran sentiment is from do crafts family sentiments( had to cut Grandma but I will never use it as that anyway!!)

I will be entering this card into the following challenges use up your bling, birthday Birthdays (mini gems from stash and scraps of card for the die cuts) Bingo board(dry emossing, diecuts, flowers) use die  cuts or punches mother's day/female card

Thanks for stopping by
