We are back and we had a wonderful time. We saw the Northern Lights one icy cold night and very excitingly my daughter's boyfriend proposed and she accepted so they are now engaged. We didn't see any whales though we did try on a 6 hour boat ride in rough seas. One day we did the Golden Circle Tour and we saw a thermally heated greenhouse where they grow tomatoes all year round, the big Geyser and the Gullfoss waterfall. On the last day we lazed in the thermal waters at the Blue Lagoon. My daughter's fiancé is very good at taking photos and I will try to get some of his to show you.
Today is the birthday of my special work friend and I think it will be safe to share her card now as she should have seen it earlier. This is the friend that took me to the charity craft day I attended a couple of weeks ago so I wanted to use the stamp set we got there to make her card.
The frame was made I used the Ornate Pierced Rectangles, from the Noble collection by Sue Wilson, to make the frame.
This is the largest stamp from the Stampin Up Birthday Blooms stamp set. It was stamped in black and heat embossed with a sparkly black embossing powder. The image was then coloured coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment comes in the set too.
I am sure my friend will love this card. I hope that she has a very happy birthday.
