It's a celebration.....

Howdy mission yesterday was to make this card to mark the birthday of our new office at work....just aswell I was off as it took me nearly all day!! There's a few teams of us and one of the fun activities planned for Wednesday is best team birthday card....well hopefully we win!!

I went with the Jubilee theme as this is a big thing at work so I combined the two...I have used papers and embellishments from Portobello Road. I distressed each of the layers, I embossed and distressed the Union Jack in order to see the outline of the flag. All the die cuts have been cut with My Favourite Things dies....all for fun and I hey team I hope it passes the test!!

Sir Stampalot - monarchs
Joanna sheen - flower power
My Mums Craft Shop - embossing
Simon Says Stamp - birthday
Truly Scrumptious - distressing/die cuts
Polka Doodles - distressing
