BIRTHDAY WISHES


Good afternoon! Today's card is for two challenges the first is PAPERTAKE WEEKLY and their challenge this week is Fancy A Punch?. I've used my fave x-cut flower punch and a fiskars border punch, I love layering these border punches. I think it looks really pretty and its a really good way for me to use up the scraps of paper I have when I cut my 6x6 pieces down as it grieves me to throw paper away :).

The second challenge i'm entering this card into is EVERYBODY-ART-CHALLENGE who have a Flowers theme this week. I have used one of the gorgeous LOTV die cut images and the paper's are an old Making Memories 6x6 pad, the sentiment is craftwork cards, the adhesive stones are papermania, ribbon is from poppicrafts and ofcourse Handstitching. Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment :) xx
