Spread your tiny wings and fly away.......

Hi everybody and first of all I want to say a very warm welcome to my new followers.  It is always a lovely surprise to see a new name appear.  It is quite cold here in Northern  Ireland but thank goodness we have not had any snow - yet.
  It's my brother's birthday on the 18th and his interests are motor bikes and vintage cars so needless to say all his cards will be on those themes so I decided to do something different and used a Lighthouse - as you would.  I have used the lovely set of stamps from Kanban  and yes I embossed them in gold.  I used the Spellbinders Marvellous squares both for the frame and the image and that was it.

                                                                 
Thank you for taking a look.

Hi Marie-Louise. We have got lots of snow and it doesn't show any signs of stopping - "and I've bought some corn for popping, tra la!" Sorry the white stuff is addling my brain and now I'm singing Christmas songs! I love this image and how you have used it with Marvellous Squares. I have this set but don't use it often enough. Keep warm. Love from Christine x

This is gorgeous Marie-Louise, it's very elegant, I'm sure your brother will love it... I also have a card to do for someone who love motor bikes, still haven't decided on what to do... but your idea that he will get lots of cards with this theme is very interesting ha ha :)

Oh my word Marie-Louise - I haven't been by for a while and I do apologise. I have just been looking at some of your past cards and this one is simply superb!!! I think lots of us tend to forget to stamp and emboss in gold like this. This looks soooo perfect in this design. What a marvellous card!
Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
