Happy Birthday dear Son-in-Law


This is the first of four cards for SIL's birthday. I only just managed to get them finished in time.  My main printer ran out of all four ink carts and the standby is giving me gaps and streaks

This follows a design in my craft mag and looks simple enough but I did have a  challenge getting the banners straight.
The main BP was a bit left over from one of the other cards and the green and orange freebies from craft mag.
The CB embossing folder, I think, is called textile - anyway it is one of my favourites and most used.
I didn't want to use ribbon so I've some stringy twine as a simple embellishment.

Computer generated sentiment fixed with foam pads on a die cut label also fixed with foam pads

I'd like to enter the following challenges
Cuttlebug Mania - embossing
Top Tip Tuesday #107 - embossing
TTCRD - anything goes
CYP #175 - don't get your twine in a tangle

Thank you for stopping by today and the much appreciated comments on previous posts
Cheers me dears :)

Beautiful texture from the embossing on these wonderful flags. The colours are lovely and I really like the way you made the sentiment stand out from the background. The string is a great detail. Thanks for joining our Don't Get Your Twine in a Tangle challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
