Happy Birthday Pauline!

My lovely blogging buddy Pauline is celebrating her birthday today...so of course I've made her a card. I followed the sketch from the Stampavie & More Challenge...when did they change the name and let us use any stamps??? I've used a Penny Black stamp ('Gifts for you!') as it was through our shared love of PBs that I first met Pauline, on the DoCrafts forum. I decoupaged the flower head...you may be able to see it better if you click the photo for a larger view. I used BasicGrey papers ('Blush') in shades of pink and green, as it's one of her favourite colour combos, embossing the pink one with my 'Spots & Dots' folder. The flowers are from Poppicrafts, the pearl brads are Papermania, the sentiment is by Stampendous, and I used a couple of pieces of Craftwork Cards 'card candy'. I'm also entering this card for the Everybody Art Challenge, where the theme is 'Animals', and the Secret Crafter Challenge which has the theme of 'Flowers' this week.


Hope you're having a fabulous birthday Pauline!
