40th Brithday


I am so bored of the snow - it just needs to go away now!  I must admit that I'm a big old wimp when it comes to cold weather - I'd much rather stay inside.

Here's my latest card - one of our cousins is celebrating her 40th birthday and I was asked to make a card for her.  It was also a super excuse to buy a new image - as I had nothing suitable ... nope nothing at all!!

Apologies for the photo quality. I've used a Tiddly Inks image, some papermania papers - I can't remember the name though!, a memory box bird cage die. The butterflies, which are fast becoming a favourite, are a Sizzix Embosslit called Beautiful Wings and is from Stampin' Up.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

OSAAT - Use a Digi
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Creative Creations Challenges - The Letter B (Blue, Birthdays, Butterflys, Bling, Bird Cage)
Lexi's Creations - Mothers Day / Special Female Birthday
My Grafico - Anything Goes
Pause Dream Enjoy - Anything Goes
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Use a Digi
Clearly Inspired - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking - wrap up warm!

I think that there is an unwritten law that it is unethical to use an image for a birthday card that you have used before. LOL This is darling & I hope that your cousin loves it & appreciates it. Thank you for sharing with us at our neighborhood at 613 Avenue Create. We look forward to seeing more of your crafty goodness. Hugs~Patti
