Birthday Card for Sue

This is my very first card for 2014 and it was made for Sue (Buttons).
The beautiful pattern is a447 and is available from Ann's Paper Art.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 0151, 0862,1114,6043.
I reduced the pattern to fit into the Couture creations large oval.
The gorgeous paper is from Lili of the Valley called Fresh Petals.
Corner dies are Nellie Snellen mfd031 which have been coloured
 with Tim Holtz, Distress Ink weather wood and forest moss.
Spellbinders - Curved Boarder Two, S5-201 has made a lovely edge along the bottom of the card.
I sprinkled a small amount of Frantáge, shabby blue around the edge of the oval, this is the first time that I have used it and
 I was very pleased with the results.
 I have since bought Frantáge shabby white and I am looking forward to giving that a

I am so very pleased with the end result of this birthday card and I hope that you like it as well.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.
