Winter Birthday Card

Hi everyone, hope you don't mind seeing the same image again but I so loved how this image turned out as a flower - it's one of the freebies from Rusty Pickles Digital Delights . I have used the sketch at Allsorts Challenges shown below and they also want you to use your old stash or a new purchase.

I have used a very old stamp for the sentiment, one from Anita. The papers were left overs and are from Funky Fairy's who have now sadly closed down. My new purchase was my cuttlebug which was an early Christmas present as were the scalloped nesties.

The flower has been glittered with gold glitter and attached using a gem brad which I have had for ages too. I have used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Peeled Paint - around the edges of the large scallop and the sentiment. The flowers are done usaing my punches and topped off with a gem in the middle. Flowers and gems my favourite embellishments.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges :-

Crazy 4 Cahllenges - Polka Dots,

Pile It On - Digital image,

The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Use 2 of your favourite embellishments,

Papertake Weekly - New Item and,

Pollycraft Monday - Winter Birthdays (This is a card for someone this month).

Hope you like it - don't forget to let me know.
