"Expanding" On 'Everything Eleanor'

Happy Thursday all :)
Today's post is the remaining project for the class next week, showcasing the gorgeous set 'Everything Eleanor'. It's a birthday card thats expands!
I have had an idea in my head of how I wanted this card to look, but getting it from my grey matter into creation took a bit of work!
I have used two chipboard coasters and decorated them. I've used the wonderful 'Natural Composition' DSP and coloured it with  'Primrose Petal' ink. I think it gives a rich damask feel to it. I love it!
I heat embossed the swirl (a mistake but I can live with it) and the sentiment. Did you notice the pretty vintage faceted button? They are sooooo pretty! I added a pearl in the centre and a little lace.
Wonder what the inside looks like?

 It was too long to fit in my photo booth very well so I took a close up of the last few letters...

I love the little bird image in the set and I was determined to have him on the card somewhere!
Do you have someone super special you could send this birthday card to?

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek :)
