Happy Birthday Charlotte ........


An 18th Birthday card for Charlotte - I made this card following this weeks sketch over at Papertake Weekly - please pop over and check out the rest of the Design Teams creations - they are stunning!
All of the background papers have been machine stitched on to kraft card.  The sentiment was computer generated and I printed it out in dark pink to match the card.  The numbers were cut from white card with Sizzix dies then embossed and fixed with sticky pads to make them stand out - the edges were distressed with Tea Dye ink  - for a bit of sparkle, I then added some swirls of Zva crystals



I distressed my flowers (brown rose, pink/white rose, pretty blossoms and rose buds) with snow-white ink, then added some 18mm zig zag cream cotton lace and gorgeous Pink Twinkle ribbon

Mulberry flowers, Pink Top Stitching Thread, Zva crystal flourishes, Twinkle Ribbon and 18mm Cream Cotton Lace are all from The Ribbon Girl

Oh by the way, there is a fabulous give away on the Ribbon Girl blog this week - you could win a mega bundle of ribbons and embellishments plus a $20 voucher for Jacque Larsen  digital paper pieces!
