I have made this Happy Birthday card for a young lady called Pat.
I used a cream base card with a brown special effect card for the background paper and then used a "Card Companions" element from Crafters Companions (TM) "Fairy Poppets" CD for the background.
I glossed the buckle part of the border and punched out three buttons.
The swirl is a "Spellbinders" (TM) die that I used to cut out from the same card that I used in the background and also around the buckle border to make it stand out.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a DO Crafts (TM) sentiment sheet.
The little girl image is taken from the Mabel Lucie Attwell (TM) Vol 1 CD and I have coloured it in using Letraset Pro-markers (TM).
I then used Tim Holtz (TM) distress ink and distressed the edges to give a slightly aged look to the image.
