Birthday Celebration

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Oh my I had a fabulous time yesterday meeting up with my crafty friends and also bought myself some new crafty goodies.

A day spent crafting today as it is going to be the last one for a couple of weeks while I get my craft room emptied, decorated and then refurbished, it is well overdue!

Today a birthday card to share.

Step by Step

1. Bronze pearlescent card scored to create an A5 landscape card.
2. First layer was from my stash which I have distressed with weathered wood.
3. I matted and layered embossed canvas card which I also distressed with vintage photo.  I then wrapped blue and brown organza ribbon around both layers before matting and layering onto base card.
4. Distressed around the topper before matting and layering onto blue distressed card.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment, made a double bow added a blue cabachon and handbag charm.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Simply Papercrafts #14 - Always Anything Goes
That's Crafty - Girls will be Girls
Creative Knockouts #109 - Lots of Layers
