Birthday Card Finished

Good Morning everyone!  I have to go clean a house today but I had to share the birthday card I mentioned to you yesterday that I had in the works.  Well it's finished and I am very happy with it and I am pretty sure my friend will love it.  She expects handmade cards from our house and tells me about it if I give her store bought.  Any ways my friend is a purple fan, hence all the purple.  So I used my spellbinder to die cut 2 corners from the Parisian Accents die and also 2 different sizes from Labels 4 die.  The corset stamp & sentiment are both from Rubbernecker Stamps.  The copper flowers and sprockets I am unsure who makes these as wrapper was tossed previously, unfortunately.  I used my Xyron glue runner to add the deep purple paper on the ivory card based. Added the corner die cuts with glue pen. Then embossed the corset and phrase with dark purple powder on the other die cuts. I used haystack color chalk and daubed it around the edges and added a bit of Bling to the top and bottom of each die cut. Then they were attached to the card with foam tape squares.  I then added the copper flowers & sprockets.  It still needed something so I added the light lavender Bling to each corner die.  I also used a small corner punch on the top right and bottom right corners.  I think that it is complete now! And here is the finished product.  Isn't it pretty?

Well guess I need to finish my morning coffee and get ready to head out in a little while.  Thanks for popping by for a visit.
