Quite a few of my friends had birthdays in the last month or so, and I'm only now getting a chance to blog the cards I made them and wish them a (very) belated Happy Birthday.
I designed the background paper for this card myself for a challenge last year, and found it hard to cut into it. I'm glad I did though - I like the soft colours and the felt swirls from the Scrapbook Store are just so lovely to play with.
This is another background I created myself and although its actually quite bright for me I enjoyed experimenting and playing up the shabby chic feel.
I desparately wanted to play with this netting which came from a fabulous bunch of flowers I was given. Although pink and blue aren't colours I'd normally put together, I was so pleased with the richness of the finished piece.
