Uniko's Birthday Link Up Party!


Today we are celebrating Uniko's 5th birthday and there is a fab linky party over on the blog.  It is open until 10 March so there is lots of time to play along and there are prizes to be won too!  All you need to do is make a birthday card to join in.

I made a card using the recently released Marvellous Mehndi stamps:

I white embossed the beautiful paisley style images and inked over with rich reds, oranges and yellows.  The sentiment is from the Cosmos set.

Whilst I had the set out I decided to stamp and frame the beautiful mandala from the set in the same colour scheme.

I think they would make a lovely matching birthday gift and card.  I have added them for sale in my Folksy shop if you know of anyone who would be interested.

Do check out the fab birthday fun over at the Uniko blog.  The DT have made some gorgeous birthday cards. Bev has done an amazing job designing and running Uniko for the past 5 years and she has a gorgeous new release for us later this month too :)

See you again soon,
