Never enough birthday cards . . .

Hello All 
and welcome back to Dar's Crafty Creations!

Today I have yet another birthday creation to share with you!
I have a spring show coming up in April and these ladies typically buy me out of birthday cards so I'm trying to have even more than usual available to them this year.

Plus, it's snowing and what better to do than craft! 


I have used another panel from that beautiful Ella & Viv 12x12 paper pack called 'The Butterfly Effect Kit' that I used on yesterday's creation.  But this time I die cut it using the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Cathedral Lace Frame' as well as my matting square (Tutti Designs 'Scallop Stitched Nesting Squares) and the Poppystamps Musical Happy Birthday sentiment die.

I die cut the sentiment die a total of 5 times ... 4 from white card stock scraps and the final from this pretty paper.  That gives my sentiment beautiful dimension and a hint of shadowing.  


A few sequins are all that is needed to embellish this creation.

Challenges to share in:
Seize the Birthday Challenge - Topping option is Candles ... I'm just going with BIRTHDAY this time around.
As You Like It Challenge  - Favorite Way to add Stitching - faux, real, drawn & why ... (die cuts ... always perfectly spaced vs my hand drawn faux stitching, lol)



This was such a quick and easy card to create and I'm sure it will be snatched up right away at the show.  More to come ... hope you have a nice weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .

Some lucky lady at your spring show will snatch this right up, along with several other of your cards, I'm guessing. When people are looking to buy hand made cards they love the die cuts and dimension and pretty papers, and this card has it all. Still easy to mail, and that's important, too. You go, Darlene!
