Happy Birthday

Poor Karen at Scrapbook Sisters was rather poorly last week so the "Birthday Greetings" challenge didn't get posted, thankfully she is now feeling much better so it will now be the challenge for this week.


For my DT card I used Sizzix dies for the flower and flourish adding a large self adhesive pearl to the centre.

A strip of ribbon topped with ric-rack was added down the side.



The sentiment was free on a magazine cut out using nestabilities,then a die cut edge strip added to the bottom edge of the card. All of the edges were brushed with a brown chalk eye.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
MIM47,anything goes,
Stamps R Us,Happy birthday,
Come And Get It Challenge, Make your own flowers,
OSAAT 72,Pearls and swirls,
PTT26,Anything goes,
Allsorts 113,Free and easy.
I'm hoping that the recipient of this card has a wonderful birthday today,"Happy Birthday Penny!"
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
