Birthday Wishes

Hello Blog Friends - I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend - Sunday night has arrived too quickly - as always, but I am happy to say we have had a relaxing and productive weekend - how about you? Some of my time has been spent in The Studio and I love that...no surprises there!

I am always trying to steam-line what is on my desk - the best way to achieve it is to create cards with those things that are gather (well, it is my story and I am sticking to it! LOL!)  I have used the Royal Circle Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Elements and Fleur de Elegance Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Accents for my card - the Royal Circle has been used as a stencil before removing the cardstock from the Die - using Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko Memento Ink in Teal Zeal.

My flower has been hand cut/fussy cut from some retired Stampin' Up! paper and popped onto seam binding as an embellishment.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card. 

This card is linked to the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - R is for Ribbon
Simply Papercraft - Always Anything Goes
Graph'It Colour Challenge - Autumn / Christmas Colors*

Aud Sentiments Challenge - Birthday (+ a sentiment)
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
