A Couture Birthday

Well I did it again... I cut into my Graphic 45 papers!  I would like to say that it gets easier the more you do it but I'd be telling fibs!  However I made this for my dad to give to my mum for her birthday so it was worth all the cutting up.

I used the Couture paper pad and a gem heart, silver beaded chain, a pearl heart (all from my stash) which I coloured with a black Graph It marker and used some glossy accents on the printed beads.

  1. That is beautiful! I am the same with Graphic 45 papers, I can hardly bear to cut into them and often keep them for months before making the first cut. But then the floodgates open because I got so inspired by them!

  2. Gorgeous! I do love the beautiful design papers and your creation.
