Birthday Angel

Last Wednesday's OWH Stars and Stamps midweek throwdown was a recipe challenge...to make a card using a die cut or punch, ribbon and heat or dry embossing!

I punched out 5 hearts and glued them together to make the button...I finished it off with some Crystal Effects and tied it with some embroidery thread. I hand ruffled the ribbon to match the ruffles in the angels dress and I embossed the background with an embossing folder.
