A Birthday Card for Barbara

Evening Everyone,
On Tuesday it was the birthday of the lovely Barbara Grey, and this is the card that I made for her.
I'm rather hoping that she got so many cards that she won't notice that mine will be fashionably late as always lol.
I have, of course, used a Clarity stamp Snowdrop which has been stamped and embossed onto a piece of background paper created using the Faux Mother of Pearl technique.
The background papers are from my stash, although I have added some subtle stamping around the edges.
Happy Birthday is part of another Clarity Corner stamp.
I added some buttons made with a Stampin Up die and some metallic clips. I hope she likes it, when it finally arrives.
I started my holiday this afternoon, and am writing this from my 'Crafty Corner' at SirStampalot.
My table was ready for me on arrival along with a 'Challenge' pile and a crate for my shopping lol.
Why not stop by and say Hello, I'm here for over a week.
