Happy Birthday

Is it only Thursday? I'm absolutely shattered and it's not even Friday yet. I don't know if it's the warm weather, my meds or a combination of the two, but I could sleep for England right now.
Today's card is one from the files that I haven't shared before. It was my colleague's birthday (bet you can't guess how old she was!) and so I made a card for us all to sign. I used an scalloped 8x8 card base and printed the backing paper and decoupage off a crafters companion BeBunni cd-rom. I die cut Sue Wilson's striplet, a Marianne balloon and numbers and sentiment from All Occasion dies out of pink card. I added a mat of gold Miri card and die cut a spellbinders grand stately circles die out of the gold and added a circle of white to build the sentiment on. A few flowers from my stash, a few pearls and a bit of faux stitching to finish. Apologies once again for the bad pictures, hopefully you can see the layers of decoupage in the last pic. Right off to try and use some cocktail sticks to hold my eye open...


  1. Wow Cara, this is just so adorable, love all the details and design.

    Hugs Diane

  2. Hi Cara, the warm weather can of course make you tired, but maybe your meds are contributing to how you feel too, hope you perk up soon.
    Your card is beautiful, gorgeous colours and layout, I'm sure it will be loved, Kate x

  3. Oh my goodness how cute and beautiful is this card. I must check out my cd. It's a shame our printer is useless not good for printing. :(
