Birthday Girl

Good morning, looks like our dry weather is about to disappear, expecting rain today and tomorrow here is 'not so sunny' Birmingham.

Lets hope our new challenge at Crafting From The Heart enhances your day.

Challenge 80 is themed 'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsor is

I chose a beautiful and useful digi stamp called 'Birthday Girl'

Once printed, fussy cut with my BSC I coloured her using copic markers.

When I fussy her on the BSC with a 1mm seam I also cut a mat with 2mm seam. I do love my 'Brian' for this kind of thing, it so cuts down on time.

My patterned backing paper was from Craftwork Cards and also a digi kit from Daisytrail called 'Celebrations'  I also used some navy blue card for matting and layering with my patterned paper.

My flower is a stamp from Chloe Creative Cards which you can buy in three sizes.  I stamped 2 of each size using my versamark and then embossed them with Pumpkin embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer.

The orange flourishes are from Sue Wilson dies and I finished it off with card candy in the middle of the flower and some pearl drops from tonic nuvo.
