Good morning bloggers and crafty friends

This is the card I gave to our dearest friends recently, when their only daughter had a little boy.  I had made the 'mini mini album' for them to give to their daughter

It is an A5 pearlised white base card and I die cut 3 circles in the smaller, blue top panel.  Once die cut I embossed the card using the 'Cascading Hearts' e/f

The individual animals were each die cut 3 times and embossed.  I added a little colour to the giraffe and lion whilst they were still in the die using 2 distress oxide inks , vintage photo and walnut stain

The sentiments were also die cut 3 times and embossed, the top and middle one are from the same 'Shadow Box Collection' - New Arrival

I adhered the 'congratulations' (Expressions Die Set) to fit around the circle

I typed a lovely verse that was actually sent to my hubby and I when we became grandparents 10 years ago!  Those years have certainly flown by

I'm happy to add Anne and Denis loved their card

Until tomorrow....
