Happy Birthday

I haven't been able to craft for some weeks now so I am showing some cards I have made in the previous months and not posted on my blog.

Here is a card I have made using an image from The Paper Shelter called "Glamorous Girls".  What I like about these images is that you get black-and-white versions to colour yourself but then there are coloured images, coloured background and a coloured image on the background.  I do love colouring images but I still love the first area I went into in cardmaking ie decoupage.

I used the image with the background and printed out three times so that I could do some decoupage.

The backing papers are from my stash.

I have finished the card off with stamped corners/sentiment (and without my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform I would NEVER have attempted this as knowing me I'd not stamp one corner or the sentiment hard enough and it would be ruined!!), lace, frilly ribbon, pearls and organza ribbon.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper Shelter - Birthday girl
Crafty Catz - Anything goes with the option of monochrome
Polkadoodles - Anything goes
A Gem of a Challenge - Anything goes
Allsorts - Happy birthday
As You Like It - Favourite - his or hers and why (If I am totally honest I prefer to make cards/projects for females as I can use a wider choice of colours, wider choice of images and of course use lots and lots of yummy embellishments eg ribbon, lace, pearls, gems etc)
