Happy Birthday to a special friend....

Hi Susan here....

Over at Lexi's Creation's we are celebrating our first birthday. What an exciting year its been and Lexi has produced so many great images. For this challenge we will have THREE randomly selected winners.

Fairy Dust Crafts is sponsoring the challenge this week

First Prize: 2 Fairy Dust Rubber Stamps to the winner (Lexi's Creation's images)….The stamps are called Fairy Dust stamps in the store
2nd Prize: 3 Digi's
3rd Prize: 2 Digi's From Fairy Dust Crafts

The theme this time has to be......well I'm sure you have guessed it.....Birthdays. If you are in need of inspiration or just want to know the full details of the challenge then call across to Lexi's Creations and join in the fun with us on this special challenge.

For my card I used a sketch that I really liked from Lil Lolita, my backing papers are all from my stash, all the edges of my papers have been distressed and glittered with stickles, I used a punch to make the upright border and used two types of paper and overlapped, then glittered the punched edge. The pearls and ribbon are from my local market. My sentiment was from a My Craft Studio programme.

This fabulous image is one of Lexi's and she is called 'Roxi', you can find her at the Fairy Dust Crafts Store. I love this image she is so cool.....I used Pro-Markers to colour her in and then cut her out so that I could layer her over the edge of my sentiment.

My flowers are handmade using punches, the larger one was cut out from old book pages and then inked with a deep red ink, the smaller roses were punched out from some of the backing paper and shaped by hand into the rose shape, the buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
