Birthday Card



Well this card was a mammoth one to make and just as so to take good photos of!!!  I have used Debbi Moore's Glitter and Glam Art Deco CD for all the images as they are wonderful.  As the person I have made it for likes her jewellery I have added more gems to the project that I normally would have done - but that's the luxury of making your own cards for people ie you can tailor to their likes/dislikes.

I feel proud that I printed off the full sheets of toppers but have all the large ones and some smaller ones left for other cards/projects.  The card is made up of 3 C6 cards I bought in a sale in January 2009 and hadn't used before and I have used so many pieces of A5 or smaller pieces of card and paper from the bit box on the table and even used a piece of backing paper from the CD that I'd printed off already.  My New Year's Resolution is still going strong.  I have used various ribbons, gems galore, card candy and a gorgeous flower attached to ribbon that I won in some blog candy last year (well I've looked at it sooooooooo many times to use it but couldn't but I think it needed a better home than my ribbon box!!!) to embellish the card.  Just hope the recipient likes it.

This card fits the following challenges:


CRAFT Challenge - Red

Creative Belli Challenge - Hearts - (I've used a number of heart gems on the card)
