Magical Masks friendship card

Here is a card I made for a good friend of mine as it is her birthday today, we had a lovely evening celebrating with cocktails in Surbiton tonight (apologies for any typos!!!).

The colour in this card comes mainly from Mister Huey's mister sprays (sunset, plumb thumb & taxi), used on the background card and for the tag backgrounds, but also some TH distress inks, and of course treasure gold. I created a diamond/ harlequin mask on my Cricut Mini which I inked through and then embossed with Stampendous Rose embossing powder. I then used Clarity Stamps on each of the masks (birds, dancer & vine) and then stamped a mask from a Kanban set on all three tags and embossed with black Wow embossing powder. I also stamped the birthday greeting. I added treasure gold to lots of places and around all the edges, also to the little roses which I also cut with my Cricut Mini and rolled with a quilling pen.The touch of purple on the masks is from Cosmic Shimmer mica powders which I mixed with water to create a paint. The cord was from an old gift bag.
