For a special friend.

Followers of either of my blogs will know that a special friend of ours, Eileen, had a party last weekend to celebrate her 70th birthday and also hers and Tony's 25th wedding anniversary. So here is the card I made for her birthday.
All the stamps, including the main sentiment are from Chocolate Baroque.(The happy Birthday is a Britannia Die). The edge of the base layer was cut with a combination of sizzix dies - the bracket edge and one of the coordinating lace fillers. A gold underlay was cut just using the bracket edge, and a narrow black layer added under these to bring it out to the full width again. The sentiment is cut with a decorative labels 8 die, inked around the edges, and mounted on a double mat in gold and black cut with standard labels 8 dies. The poppies are painted with H20's, fussy cut and decoupaged over the topper.
I am entering this card in :
Left of Centre Challenge 9: Use a sentiment on the front.

and Inspire me Fridays 110: Anything goes.
