Happy Birthday ...

Time for another challenge at 
and it is nice and easy 'Birthdays'

I have made this 8x8 card with an aperture using this gorgeous
stamp that I just fell in love with as soon as I saw it.
It is a fairly large stamp hence the large card!

A view of the inside and a close up too!
This card has to be one of my all time favourites and I must confess took
me many many hours of love to create.
All matting and layering/shapes were cut on my lovely Silhouette
and every single piece has been hand stitched.

I have used papers, flowers, butterflies, sentiment, gems, Kraft,
buttons, ribbon & lace.  Image has been decoupaged and 
coloured with Promarkers

This challenge is sponsored by 

who have a £ 10 voucher for one lucky winner!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -
I Love Promarkers - Put a button on it (I won Top 3)!
Penny Black & More Challenge - Sew Special (all handstitched)! (I Won Guest Designer for July)!

Why not come and play along with us, take care, love x
