Good fternoon my friends, I hope you are all ok and looking forward to the weekend.  At the moment the sun is shining here, buy boy is there a real chill in the air.

Anyway, on a brighter theme, lets put  card up to brighten the day.

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges.

Polka Doodle.  Week #13. USE A DIE.

Crafty Gals Corner.  Challenge #12.. ANYTHING GOES.

Sister Act.  Challenge #99.  ANYTHING GOES.

Simply Create Too.  Challenge #82.  ANYTHING GOES.

For the backdrop of this card I used paper from the
Kate Knight, TOTALLY TROPICALSUMMER PAPERS PAD.  This was first mounted onto
PALE PINK CARD leaving a narrow border and then all edges were given a
I then made a BROAD PANEL for across the middle of the card using a scrap of leftover card, mounted onto PINK PEARLISED CARD and again edges with the SILVER BORDER. It was positioned on sticky pads to make 3D.
I then used the Spellbinders TEAR DROP CIRCLES die in PINK GINGHAM CARD. I also die cut smaller circle using the Crafts Too - FRAMES 11 SET.  These were then layered together and then I added a sentiment disc in the centre which reads  "IT'S YOUR DAY".
For the flowers I added some small ready made flowers, but I also used the SMALL DAISY PUNCH to make others in co-ordinating card with SMALL ROSEBUDS for the centres. I also die-cut the foliage using the Spellbinders FOLIAGE SET.
The final addition was a BOW which was die-cut using the
Creative Expressions- DOTTY 3D ITTY BITTY BOW DIES with the addition of a
PINK ROSEBUD in the centre.

Thank you very much for popping in to visit me today, I appreciate it very much. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Crafting too.
Lots of love, Sandra xxx
