Happy Birthday

I used the negative of the sentiment for this one - decided it was more effective!

Glitter n Sparkle - Happy Birthday
http://glitternsparklechallengeblog.blogspot.co.nz/2016/09/its-our-birthday-challenge-207.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by MME - I have had this pad for a few years and still have a few papers left in the pad.  The images are from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured with copic markers.  I die-cut the sentiment from a strip of orange cardstock and then used the negative to attach to the card.  I also added a strip of gold lace edging.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Too

A slight twist on the traditional christmas colours - with red and mint green.
