Happy Birthday

My husband’s grandmother’s birthday was yesterday, so I needed to make a simple and elegant card for her. One of my favorite embossing folders is Cuttlebug’s Birds and Swirls. It gives a nice deep emboss and is just so pretty! I used cream cardstock, and swiped Archive Brilliance Platinum Planet ink over the raised surface; the result was a pearly embossed pattern that was subtle but elegant. Here is my card:
