Happy birthday!

Hi everyone :D

I know I am not very adventurous with my titles!
I have just finished a card  I LOVE.  I really really really like this one.


I followed the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I thought my image would be too big but I do like it this big.
I really wanted to try and do some distressing and I think i've done it ok!  I love sponging my edges now (as if you don't know by this card), I think it really makes the card look a lot nicer.  I use my promarkers to sponge the edges again :)
This is also the stamp I ordered with Annika that I had to use!
I also embossed the card which you can kind of see if you enlarge it.

I am entering this for:
Simon Says Challenge - 'Shabby chic'
Flutter by Wednesday's - Anything with a Fairy, Butterfly or angel. Go and check them out as they are having some blog candy give aways too!
Craft Catz - Bright and Sparkly.  I think even though the card is quite dark, the image makes up for this theme as I used bright colours and lots of sparkle :)
Crafty Cardmakers - New (Stamp)


Ingredients:
Promarkers
Stamp - Flutter Anya
Prima Flowers
The glitter is some cheap stuff from wilkos
Lovely DP from Lisa
Ribbon from a local market
Card from Papermill
