A Very Pink Happy Birthday

Sooo, this is a card I made earlier in the week, but it has been a very busy (and somewhat stressful) week, so this is the first chance I have had to sit down and write.

Anyway, this is a card made for a colleague, whose birthday it is tomorrow, but I doubt very much that she reads the blog, so I think it is safe to share on here.  My sister's birthday is also tomorrow, but I do know that she reads the blog so I can't share her card just yet - you will just have to wait for that.

I started this card by using an LOTV stamp to stamp 'birthday' in worn lipstick distress ink onto white card.  I then cut this to size and layered it onto some mesh that I had in my stash - I guess I got this free with a magazine at some point but I'm not too sure.

I then layered some spotty and some stripey papers from my stash behind this and attached the lot onto some pink card.

I wrapped the finished panel with some sticky back lace and made some bows from some pink spotty ribbon.

I added some pink gems, a butterfly metal charm and, finally, some glittery foam letters to spell 'happy'.

It turned out much pinker than I ever intended, but I do quite like the pink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!
