Glad to be back to birthdays! Yes I am! and the first Birthday Card of the year is always made for Mr Lavinias Mum as her birthday is New Years Eve. I did enjoy making this card after a raft of red & green & gold! I used some stash I have had a while and some newley aquired Yuletide crafty gifts. The papers are Kay & co & Papermainia. The Felt Butterfly is Henbury Lane from Papermainia as is the the sentiment stamp & banner, from their new mix n match greetings set. The card blanc was new too from QVC they were doing a special on them, good value too 120 mixed size scolloped edge card blancs. The ribbon is from a very special stash box I have, it's from an Antique Market in Nice France & I only EVER use it for very very special cards. The pearls & stickles finish off to add sparkle! I added the 2 pictures of the card so you could see it from both aspects, I like the darker of the two.
