40th Birthday Card for a special friend.

I have fallen in love with Shimmer Paint. I have used it here to watercolour the cupcakes and the stand. I have also attached small pearls in place of the cherries on top. The card looks way better IRL. I was rushing out the door last nite to the party and realised I hadn't taken a picture, thats why it hasn't turned out so well, because I had to use the flash. I have also used the elegant lines embossing die and some organza ribbon. The colours are Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy. I mixed the Shimmer Paint with my inkers with the aqua painter and it turned out really well. I look forward to experimenting with this some more.
