   The theme for this fortnight's challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is birthdays.
   I matted pale green pearlescent card onto purple mirri and white card. To make the flower design I used Sheena Douglass' Adorable Anemone dies and stamps from the full bloom set. I stamped and cut several layers to build up a decoupaged image colouring them using Promarkers and added some flourishes cut from black card. The sentiment was also cut from black card using Tattered Lace's happy birthday swirl die.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Crafty Friends - flowers
   Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes with flowers
   Crafty Catz - anything goes with optional CAS
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
   Creatalicious - anything goes with dies and punches
   Crafting By Designs - anything goes
   Seize The Birthday - anything goes with vibrant colours
   Craft Rocket - flowers
   Through The Craft Room Door - anything goes
   Simon Says Stamp Monday - flower power
   Everybody Art - die
   As You Like It - favourite colouring medium (alcohol pens as I find I can blend more easily with these than with pencils or paint)
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
