Happy Birthday to Me

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

An early post today I am off to Leeds for our journalling workshop, also it is my birthday today and going to be taking some cake with me ;)

Whatever you have planned for today may it be a truly wonderful day.

A birthday card made using the Paper Shelter image called "The Lady"

Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 white square card.
2. Matted and layered mink pearlescent card with deep pink card at an angle.
3. Printed off the backing sheet that came with the image and adhered to base card.
4. Decoupaged the image using Pinflair and then added the cream lace and bling.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment and pearl flower.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crating with Friends #28 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers #116 - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy #173 - My Favourite Things (Lace, pearls, bling)
Simply Create Too #118 - Pink and Brown
