A telescopic birthday card for a special friend

Today was the birthday of a special friend and to make her card I made a card that was a  case from Barb Mullikin it is a lovely creation using the Big Shot and the Circle Scissors Plus, which I must admit that I dont use often enough. I think the trick is to have it out where it can be easily accessed and therefore used! The colours I used were So Safron, Perfect Plum and Whisper White, I lightly sponged around the edges of the Whisper White with Perfect Plum and used the Stamp n Write Marker to add the little design around the edge of the second layer. Cottage Garden was the stamp set I used because I love the delicate forms of the flowers and the tendrils, of which I stamped in Pear Pizazz. I finished the card off with little butterflies that were run throught the Big Shot using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. To hold the circles together I used some Butterfly Brads (not SU) but they seemed to bring the card together. My friend loved her card and I loved making it for her. We took her out to lunch to a resaurant nearby and had a lovely afternoon, and when we came home we held an impromptu class where everyone made one of these cards too. My next post is going to be another telescopic card, but with a very special person making it. Bye for now.....
