Garnets and snowdrop for a January Birthday

Here is a parchment birthday card I made for my sister whose birthday is tomorrow.  I found the pattern in the Parchment Magazine from January 2014.  The pattern is by Helen Osborne and I altered and adapted it for my own purposes.
Here it is

The 'gems' look very dark in the photo but in fact they are an almost  perfect garnet colour.  The sentiment is traced from a Groovi Plate and the rest is made up of parts of Helen's pattern.
I have spoken to her to wish her a Happy Birthday as she is out tomorrow.  The card has arrived safely waiting to be opened.  Hope she likes it.


  1. Love this card Carol and I'm sure your sister will too. the snowdrop is really beautiful and the gems don't look so dark when you enlarge the photo, stunning work

  2. So beautiful Carol I'm sure that your sister is going to love it.

  4. Beautiful card, love the design and I am sure she will keep it as a beautiful work made by you
