Sentimental Sundays.....Birthday

Hi Susan here.....

Sentimental Sundays are starting a new challenge today and the theme is 'Birthday'. How simple is that, its almost like an anything goes challenge but with a birthday theme.....come on join in with us, have some fun.
For full details of the challenge, sponsor and to get some fantastic inspiration from the design team call across to the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog.

Now onto my card....

I think this must be one of the easiest challenge themes going....I love making birthday cards, whether its for a friend or relative they are so easy to do.
This view is the front of my card, I have made one of my favourite cards a pop-out card. I love the wow factor of these cards, they are so easy to make as well.

My flowers are from Hobby Craft. The ribbon and gems are as usual from our local market.
Throughout the card I have used backing paper from my stash, I can never understand how that stash drawer stays so full when I'm always using the papers in it!!
The ticket sentiments are from Raindrop Echo Designs, I love using these, they seem to match everything!

This is to show you how the pop-out looks from the side.

This is the view of the inside so that you can see the details. The beautiful frame and sentiment in the centre is from Raindrop Echo Designs, I have used chalks to colour the frame to match my colour scheme of the card.
The punched sides match the front of the card. I have used a Multi Shaper allDeco Punch.

This is a close up of that beautiful frame and sentiment designed by Ann Vento and available from Raindrop Echo Designs.

This is such a cute digi from Robyns Fetish its called 'A little bird told me'. I have used chalks to colour and shade the image, then used flowers the same colour as the ones on the image.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and for all your wonderful comments.
Love Susan
