Boho Style Birthday Card

Hello, everyone!
I hope you are all doing fine!
I am back today with a Boho style card I created for my dear blog friend  Samra from Paper Talk With Samra for her Birthday. 


I used my Finnabair metallic paints to create my background on a piece of a mixed media paper. That beautiful metal piece I found in my stash and I glued down some gems to embellish it. I also added a piece of hand dyed seam binding and some blings and ribbons. I tucked some feathers behind the metal detail and I added a piece of some pink specialty yarn on top. I used my fine tip applicator and my antique gold  acrylic paint to write her name.

I love how this metal detail turned out. 

I had a lot of fun creating this card and I hope you like it! 

That's it for today. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving lovely comments! I read and appreciate each and every one of them!

Hugs! Branka xx



  1. Branka, your birthday card for Samra is so vibrant and lovely! The colors on the background and ribbons and feathers are so gorgeous and your embellishments are the perfect finishing touch. I love the touches of gold and your handwritten Samra in gold is a bold and daring move in my opinion! First my handwriting isn't great and I'd be so afraid of messing it up, I'd mess it up! I'm sure Samra's birthday today was made complete by receiving this wonderful, cheerful card! Big hugs and lots of love to YOU!

  2. Thank you so much Branka!!!! Your card made my day and warmed my heart! Your friendship is a true gift and inspiration my dear dear friend!
