Halloween birthday card

With Halloween finally here (tomorrow) I'm seizing my chance to use the fabulous Graphic 45 'Steampunk spells' papers once more with this natty little 4" x 4" birthday card. I've used a design from the 8" x 8" paper pad...

This lovely set of (Marianne Design) ivy dies makes a great corner feature and lifts the background a little....

I added this fab new (Cheery Lynn) steampunk clock to the centre and added the (Marianne Design) penny farthing over the top....

I added a small, glittered spider to the top left...

and the Movers & shapers mini bird with a leafy stalk to the bottom right to finish...

Have fun this Halloween!

  1. Fabulous use of the bike in the clock Chris! Lovely card x

  2. Like Jennie I love the bike in the centre - very cleverly designed.
