It is my best friend, Simone's, 40th birthday this week.
Simone and I 'found' each other on the first day of kindergarten back in 1980. We were sort of shy and standing next to each other quite nervous about starting big school. I said "Would you like to be my friend?" We held hands and walked into class. The rest is history.
35 years later we have shared many memories both happy and sad. I am godmother to two of her children and she is the godmother of my child.
Simone's favourite colour is red so keeping that in mind, I have made this card for her
I started with the chipboard numbers first. I covered them with versamark and cherry cobbler embossing powder. Once heated and dry I spread Glass Bead Gel over the top. While still wet, I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds to give it some extra sparkle.
Here is a close up
My balloons are from Lil' Inker Designs and I have embossed sentiments from the 'Say What?' set by Whimsy Stamps.
I didn't have any black twine, so I coloured my white one with a black Spectrum Noir marker.
Happy Birthday, Simone!!!!
