Finished at last

As I had not tidied away (yes, I said "tidied away") the Silhouette  after my cutting session yesterday, I decided use it to complete a card that has been sitting on my desk for ages waiting to find the right sentiment to come to mind. 

I had previously purchased the Birthday Boy file and thought that it would be an appropriate choice.  All I had to do was to measure the space that was available on the card then size the graphic to fit.

An  aside: The effect on me of seeing the Silhouette cut intricate designs is matched only by the pleasure and wonder that I always get when using embossing powder and a heat gun. You know what I mean, I'm sure.

I used a punch to cut a blue circle to use as a backing for the sentiment before mounting the result on 3D foam pads.

Now I need to have a look at the other cards that are awaiting "that finishing touch" and see if the Silhouette can oblige!

Other materials used: Stamp -Lili of the Valley -Balloon Bunny, Promarkers, Martha Stewart punches, Nestabilities label die, button , ribbon Stampin' Up embossing folder.
