A Winter Birthday Treat with the Winter Wonderland DT

Good morning to you all in the land of blog and Merry Christmas to you all

Last night was spent putting up the Christmas Tree, love doing this, so that tomorrow I can sit and write out all of my Christmas cards, do hope I have boxes for all of them this year, I have tried so hard honest.  Hope you are getting in the Christmas mood too.

Today sees the next challenge at the 

where today we move slightly from the Christmas Theme, as we anticipate that most people have by now completed all of there Christmas cards, so today's theme chosen by our talented Linda is

Winter Themed Birthday Cards
using left over Christmas papers

Also as it is December you may find that all of the design team are joining together :)

but before I move on to my creation I would like to say thank you to the lovely design team at Moving Along With the Times for choosing one of my cards for the Top Three award this week

So onto my Winter Themed Birthday card, but don't forget to hop over and see the design teams inspirational pieces too
I have used some of those gorgeous pink, purple and black Christmas papers for this little birthday card number.  The base colour is black the flowers in the main are from Wild Orchid the little feather is from Grimsby Crafts as is the image and the sentiment

I added a little stickles glitter to the flowers

The image plate has been air brushed in V15 and the image coloured in copics

The sentiment has also been airbrushed to match
The pearls are from the Hobby House
