Carol's Birthday!

This is a card for my favourite Sister-in-Law, Carol.
She is a great (and I mean great) patchworker and I wanted to reflect this in the card that I made for her.

I used some Anna Griffin (TM) scrapbook card for the base.
I used some plain cream card, embossed it with an embossing folder made by Papermania (TM) and then once embossed with the button pattern I went over it with a brown inkpad.
I used some Anna Griffin (TM) scrapbook paper for the layers and on top of this put the dies that I cut out using my Silhouette Cameo (TM).
The sentiment is from an Anna Griffin (TM) sentiment sticker sheet.
I used an Anna Griffin (TM) stamp for the rope effect along the bottom and added a button die to finish things off.
