Happy Birthday (gorjuss image)

hello friends
hope you are all well - its pretty chilly up here in Northumberland. Where did the sun go?

Here is today's card. This is a Gorjuss image - which is from a Gorjuss kit I received from my daughter for Mother's Day. She wanted to get me something for my card making and found this.

I haven't used their images before so was rather overwhelmed by all I got in the kit.
I thought best to stick to plain and simple to begin with - don't want to make a dogs dinner of such lovely papers and images.

So I printed the sentiment and details direct onto the card base itself using a font called Marita. 

Here is a close up of the image.

I found some matching card stock to make a matt and I thought it looked better.

I added some glamour dust to the butterflies.

Thanks for dropping by again today. I would love to read your comments and return the kindness by visiting your blog.
