glitter Paris and dear friends

I have sooo many fabulous customers that are now dear friends who say to me,
"Oh the pressure of making you a card Sharnee, it's sooo hard to make it perfect!"
The thing is I feel EXACTLY the same! What new technique will I show them, what cool new combo can I come up with, it's sooo funny!!!

I made this card for my wonderful friend Heather for her birthday the other week. She completely LOVES all things Paris, fav colour red and glitter/embossing is one of her favourite techniques!! SO with all those things to go with and my love for all things vintage I came up with this.
I embossed with the heat and stick first and then went over it with the wonderful galaxy fine glitter in red and black and then watercoloured in the parts on the bodice stamp. (this is one of the only sets that I've got from the USA stampin' up! catty, not available here)
Then with my sewing machine I zipped across the ribbon and added the amazing brads that I love!
The greeting says
"it seems only fitting to wish you a happy day!"
I'd like to wish you a happy day today also, whatever it is that you might be doing, may it be warm in your heart and smiles abound!

Set: Chic Boutique
Card: Basic black, Very vanilla and Real red
Ink: Whisper white stazon, real red, basic black
