Birthday Card ~ Silver Celebrations {3rd Post}

For my next two cards I thought it would be fun to use the
same image and see how different I could make the cards look.
For the first one I paper pieced the presents and gift bag.
I cut tiny spirals with a punch from foiled cardstock.
Next I added some silver sequins.
The foiled background is embossed with swirls.
To finish it off I added a bow and sentiment.

*Card 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Gifts {freebie} digi from Paper Smooches.
*Sentiment from the Happy Days stamps set from Cardz TV.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls folder.
*Circle cut using the Spellbinders Standard Circles Small die set.
*Scallop circle cut using the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles Small die set.
*Spirals cut using a punch from Michaels.
*DCWV Foiled Cardstock Stack.
*DCWV All dressed Up Matstack.
*Sequins from Joanns.
*Copic markers R83.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.
