Fabulous Darling

Good evening everyone and welcome to the weekend and hasn't it been a Fabulous week.
This evening I created a Birthday card, one of the many I need to do for my family and friends.  

As always I decided to search for some inspiration and found it on Friday Sketchers, what a lovely sketch and an opportunity for me to use my new nesties.  I also decided to go with this image horror of horrors out of this set that I purchased, I only opened this today :(

So the sketch at Friday Sketchers this week is
For once I have left it as is and not rotated it in anyway, although as you know I could not resist in adding the extras.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Whiff Of Joy Challenge - Brown/Yellow and one other colour, I selected a lovely lime green.

Fab 'n' Funky - Make it yourself - I chose to make a dangling charm out of three charms (oh never again, what a nightmare, all those jump rings) and I coloured the bow to match the card with copics (you can never find a ribbon exactly the right colour)

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Birthdays/Celebrations - I went with the Birthday option.

Stamp Something - 2 of Something - I have used two different size flowers, two different charms, two punched edges.

Well at least you did not have to wait for your drinks to go cold to get to the card this time.

Here it is
I have used some papers from the Hobby House, along with charms from a local department store, pins from the Hobby House coloured with copics again.  Flowers from Hobby Craft and my MS double loop punch to go around that new nestie.

Here is a close up of the created embellishment
The larger flower, showing those lovely pins
Here is the inner rotated but to match and the MSE sentiment.
Well it is my Wedding Anniversary tomorrow, so as I know he checks my blog out * Happy Anniversary Hun* well he is so special he deserves a special mention.

Thank you all for your lovely recent comments, and for those interested the finger is fully functional again and DH did a brill job as you can hardly see the cut.

Have fun crafting and cya soon
