Laura Ashley birthday card


Another quick birthday card post as I haven't done any baking this week. This is a simple and classic design I made using a decoupage kit I picked up in the sale in Laura Ashley. I've seen Laura Ashley-branded card making supplies on the internet which did strike me as a little strange, but why not, if you like their designs!

This was a kind of fleur-de-lys but not quite design, which I cut out and used foam pads to raise up each section. I mounted it on a piece of dark card - I think it was a khaki colour but it's hard to tell from this picture - and stuck that on a square white card blank. I used a gold outline sticker to say Happy Birthday and it looks like I didn't quite stick it on straight... that's the homemade element for you!
