Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to all that share that special day this week. The making of this card for Tellen's Place co-incided with our own Diva Joyce's birthday and this was made for her. I only hope she recieved it before the challenge post has gone up. I went "Girly" for this as I know it would be more appreciated.

The card depicts "Celebrate Paige"
coloured with promarkers cut out and attached to a pearlised card base with a holographic green stick-on border and a preprinted "Happy Birthday" topper

The card shape itself is a variation on the "stepper card". The centre panel being cut into an oval shape.
The card base is silver and panels cut to fit. The side panels are from a mag giveaway from last year and the bottom is from the "fragrant mint" collection over at Crafty Chaos Designs. Ribbons and flowers attached to co-ordinate.

Now it's your turn to show us your Birthday creations. The winner gets to choose Three images from the store.
Don't forget to go and visit the other Divas and see their beautiful birthday celebration creations.

OOPS Nearly forgot - There's a FREEBIE available on the challenge for you to use. No excuses now.
