Happy Birthday circle

Here is a card I made for a dear friend for her birthday - which in fact is today.

I used one of the new rages in the parchment world - an embossing plate.  The one that I used here is by PCA (Parchment Craft Australia). They make parchment tools as well - in fact all things parchment.  When I first started parchment it was their tools that I bought because my Tutor is PCA qualified. Now I use a mixture of PCA and Pergamano.

Here is the card

The embossing took quite a while to make sure it was all even.  Many goes at it with rests in between.  Rests for the parchment - not me I hasten to add.  Embossing is always better if you take it slowly with rests.
I stitched the finished piece to the backing with some of my favourite beads and then added some flat backed pearls to the corners.  I chose a scalloped card to try and reflect the flower petals as they go round the circle.
I enjoyed making this card very much.
