Happy Birthday, Michelle!


On Friday it's the birthday of a good friend at work, and this is the card I have made her - using the Paperartsy Christmas Fairy!  I've blinged her up - or should that be blung?! lol, with some glitter (of course!) and some little silver sticker balls on the edge of her drress.  The corner edges are glimmer chips lightly brushed in fired brick (the same ink I used for the circle) and they've been sprayed with candy apple red and walnut gold glimmer mists, with just a touch of marshmallow in between as the red was too red!  The background paper is from a new Craftwork Cards pack "Joy" some of which are Christmassy, this one is very universal.

It has been some time since I made a birthday card, rather than tags and bits and pieces, and I've really enjoyed it. I've got a few more birthdays coming up this month, so more time to play!
