Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 45 - Birthday Greetings


This week the theme at Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is...

Birthday Greetings

Which was kinda handy as I have so many birthdays in June, July and August it's not true!!

I'm sharing the card I made for my blogging friend Michele, who's birthday was a couple of weeks ago now, so I'm hoping my card has made it to her, as the man at the post office told me that posting things to the US was a bit hit and miss due to all the extra security that is in place...

... and I hope that it still looked like this when it arrived!!

I used one of the soon to be released Dancer digi stamps - Just love these, they are so classy and elegant!!

I coloured her dress in cool greys, and added a touch of sparkle - too much for my camera it would appear!!

I distressed a couple of Prima flowers and secured them with a brad and curled some photo negative ribbon behind it

And I couldn't help but finish the inside too :-D

CS/ Paper - Soft Grey and Black Bazzill; Bo Bunny "Timepiece"
Scrapbook Sisters Digi Stamp, Woodware Sentiment (on inside), Freebie sentiment from a magazine
Bits and Bobs - Prima flowers, Papermania Brad, Tim Holtz Photo Ribbon, Black Diamond Gems; Prima lace; Black Velvet ribbon, Making Memories slider

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your week!
