Flying by to say Happy Birthday


Our new challenge at Little Claire this month is a bright and beautiful card. I used one of the Swirly Birds stamps coloured with Copics and Sakura gold star pen. The papers are Crafter's Companion Scruffy Little Cat and MME Unforgettable. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and I used some old flower punches with pearls. I really should use these punches more often. I think punches get neglected sometimes nowadays in favour of dies which is a shame.

My new ribbons and lace arrived yesterday from Crafty Ribbons. They are so gorgeous and if you would like some then check out my post above and enter my candy to win a £10 voucher.

What a lovely card. The colour is great and the combination with the black & white makes me think of cherry blossom.

Wow the colour looks so rich and a bit oriental - just beautiful. What punches did you use for the flowers? I`ve been looking for these for a while now.
