Happy Birthday Wendy

Good morning everyone.

We start a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart today.

This is our 100th Challenge

What an achievement and thank you to everyone who takes part in our challenges.  Seeing your entries and getting your feedback is wonderful.  Here's to the next 100 challenges.

Our theme is the usual 'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsor is: -

On the 18th February my very special friend 'Wendy' had a birthday her 49th to be precise - hee hee she will smack me for that one.

My post today is the birthday card I made for her using stamps from Chloes Creative Cards.

The embossing powder I have used to stamp the flowers out is Phil Martin's cosmic shimmer Chic Pumpkin and green WOW powders also from Chloes Creative Cards.

The embossing folder was from Crafters Companion and the pearl drops are Tonic Nuvo.

I embossed my flowers onto vellum and the swirls onto heat resistant acetate.

I hope you like it as much as my dear friend Wendy did.  

If you want to see more designs from our design team follow the link HERE to our blog and don't forget to enter your own project into the challenge.
