Silhouette Birthday

Hi Folks
Hope you are well.  This is my second post for today and this time I have a birthday card for you.  I still have several christmas cards to make but felt in need of a break from them.  So I decided to make a birthday card for my stock.  It is my sister's birthday in January so this may well end up with her.  Nothing like getting ahead lol.  Pity I can't say the same about my christmas shopping!!!


This was quite a quick card to make as the image and the papers were all freebies in a magazine - Making Cards I think.  I matted onto coredinations cardstock and did some distressing of the edges.  I added some lace and ribbon across the centre, some flowers and a sentiment.  Although you can't see it very well I did add some glitter to the image and the flowers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
