Brother in laws birthday card!

  A very early good morning Lovelies! I was awake so thought I'd get ahead and do my post now!
As you can see its for my Brother in laws birthday not until 1 Dec, he doesn't look at my blog so don't need to worry about him seeing it, in fact none of my family are interested ;( that's probably why I seek your approval lol ;) their loss not mine! 
We have a lot of Dec and Jan birthdays, so I like to get ahead with them, so this was an experiment really, been checking out Pinterest and there's some fabulous stuff on there, I don't do random terribly well ,so thought I'd give it a go! 
6x6 craft card base, matted with black card, I got an A4 sheet of white paper and blended shades of blue and green DI, blobbed and blotted with water to get a more distressed look, and did some splats with Distress stains, this was my next layer and the rosette, which is a TH die with a stamp I have in my stash in the centre, the topper I just stamped in black a stampers anonymous set, then did a tiny bit of spritzing with Cosmic Shimmer spritzer in midnight blue, and heat dried then some more splats, then Fran-taged the top left corner with blue and white EE and added some green and blue fragments while still molten, love the effect of Fran-tage, it's so rustic. Oh and some ribbon from stash! So there you have it! I like it, I hope you do? Would love to read what you think? Thank you for visiting xxx

I read the description before I looked at the card and was certain that I wouldn't like it! But I was wrong - it's great.
