Art Deco Birthday


I made this card for my cousin who is 40 this month, she likes Art Deco and Dogs so a good excuse to use my fav digi image, a Helen Fuller from the 1920s, I coloured it in Paint Shop Pro, the backing paper is Pink Petticoat, the sentiment was a freebie, the black glitter cardstock is Papermania, the blue is from my stash. I used Marianne dies for the flourish, nesties for the image and embossing the framse and a friskars circle punch...WHY do none of my many punches actually go together? . My new toy the Woodware trimmer was used to cut the long backing paper. I would like to enter the following challenges:
