Happy birthday

   This week the challenges at Crafting From the Heart is being sponsored by Melonheadz.

   I began by matting cream card onto white. The next item I made was the window. For this I used Tattered Lace's window 2 die, cutting off the top and bottom portions and adding acetate for the panes. I cut out a piece of blue card the same size as the window and onto this I glued a printed digi image of the Eiffel tower from Melonheadz set called Paris which I had fussy cut. After sticking the die cut window to this I attached it to the card.
   I stuck a peel off picture frame onto a digi poodle from the same Paris set and stuck this to the left of the window, drawing some lines to represent the string used to hang the picture.
   I used Tattered Lace's die 'watching the world go by' to cut the lady and table and coloured it using Promarkers. I coloured another piece of card the same colour as the dress and matted this behind the dress on the die cut. I then attached it to the card using glue gel.
   Finally I fussy cut happy birthday from the same Paris set, coloured it using Promarkers and attached the sentiment to the card.
