Hello and good afternoon to you all out there in blogland. It is such a bitter cold day here today, that I am now tucked up in my craftroom, having fun and enjoying myself. Now I know that I am a lover of the colder weather, but today, it is getting through to these painful bones of mine, so I am staying where it is warm.

I started off today, messing around with scraps of card and wondering what I could create to use some of it up, well, this is what happened.

I would like to enter my creation into the following challenges.

Craft for the Craic.  Novembers Challenge #10.  BIRTHDAY.

Brown Sugar.  Challenge #120.  ANYTHING GOES.

All the paper and card is from my stash. The border is made up of scrap sized pieces, two of which have been punched down both edges with the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT PUNCH.
I then made Two Branches of Leaves from Blue Pearlised card, again using scraps, using the Spellbinders FOLIAGE SET.
The smaller flowers have been made using the Small Daisy Punch and for the centres I have added Blue Gemstones for added texture.
The I created a smaller sized card and covered with a co-ordinating patterned paper. My image is coloured with promarkers, and mounted onto two different pieces of card, then edged with a 
Silver Decorative Border to highlight.I also added more blue gems on the front of that one.
On the inside of the smaller card, I die-cut two medium sized decorative squares using the 
Spellbinders FLEUR DIS LIS SET using turquoise card. The edges have a Silver border, and on the right side I have added the words"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"  in silver.

Thank you so much for coming to visit, it is so kind of you.
I hope you like what you see, and my come back again very soon.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xx
