14th birthday


Just a quick post with this 14th birthday card...the request was for pink and sparkly.
It took longer than I expected cos, apart from cutting it out, it was a bit fiddly fixing the no: 14 to the back of the card and lining up the greeting inside so it didn't show from the front.

I have left the inside really plain.

I don't know where I got this image from...I found it in my bit box...and the paper is some left-overs in one of my files.

I couldn't help adding a flower to this sweet little girl's hat and some ribbon.

Paperplay Challenge
this week is to use favourite embellishments and flowers, ribbon and sparkle are mine :-)

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge wants us to dig deep and use an old stamp or image.

You wouldn't want to see the mess I have now got to clear up....I am such a messy old so and so :-/

Thank you for looking...I do hope you can leave a comment so i know you've stopped by.
