AYLI Favourite Die


It's a special day today, a new challenge at As You Like It and my Aunty San's 70th Birthday, she sometimes visits here

So, Happy Birthday Aunty San!!!!

The new theme is Your Favourite Die and I have no doubt about that (apart from the circles that I use all the time) my "go to" dies are Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Elegant Ovals. They add a touch of pretty without too much fuss, which I like!!

My DT card is the one that I sent her and I had a fancy for making a twist and pop card and followed a tutorial. It was far easier than I expected and this was my first attempt...result!!


The cake and numbers were free with crafting magazines


as were the sentiments that fit perfectly on the oval mats inside, hope she likes it!!

Thank you for your visit today and continued comments, they are much appreciated.
