Happy Birthday Crafty Cardmakers!!


We're celebrating our birthday today at Crafty Cardmakers, so we have a nice easy challenge for you - we'd simply like to see your birthday creations :o)  I can't believe it's been a whole year since we had the first challenge - I'd only just started blogging and Vix was kind enough to give me a chance at my very first DT post... I'd like to think my card making has come on a bit since those early days, and a lot of what I've done since has been down to Vix's encouragement, so thank you hun!

I've made this card for a friend of mine, who also makes cards, but I'm not sure if it's good enough so I might end up making another one!  I've used a fab summery image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers, and then used glossy accents to glaze the glass.  The papers are MME, with DCWV cardstock.  Green Tara flowers with button centres, downloaded sentiment from Cuddly Buddly, mounted on a nestie die.  All buttons and the ribbon (tied in a bow using the bow-easy) are from Crafty Emma's Store, bought with the voucher I won on the Pollycraft challenge.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

**I have candy at the moment - link in the top right of my blog if you'd like to enter**
