funky birthday!!


This is my second post today!!! I wishI could say I made 2 cards today but I haven't!! I made this one a couple of weeks ago ready to send off to Anice with some other funky bits!!!

I love the paper on this card, its from my funkyhand dreams come true cd along with its little digi stamp flowers that are in the extras part of the cd. I love the funky and modern papers and stamps on the cd, they are just so much fun to use!!
The scalloped cardbase is a craftwork cards one, distressed a bit around the edges with antique linen distress ink.
I cut the digi with an oval nestie and added a bit of green bling to the flowers and stamped on a little happy birthday sentiment.
I used a tiny bit of lace and ribbon across the middle to break it up.
For an extra bit of yumminess I folded back one of the corners and turned a scrap of my patterned paper to differ the direction of the stripes through the pattern to match the inside of the card and added a little brad to hold the rolled corner back.
That really is it for today!! the bike ride from yesterday has caught up with me and I have got all sleepy!!!! so off for a cuppa and a fig roll to wake me up enough for a monday night womble around everybodies blogs!!!
