An Extra Special Birthday

Some time ago I made some cards for Papercraft Essentials on behalf of Crafter's Companion.  I was asked to create four cards using the Downton Abbey collection and one of my Crafter's Companion Team Mates made another three.

I thought I would share this one with you today, it actually made the front cover (you can just about see it).

I love this collection, it's perfect for girly cards and masculine ones as well.  I used a Card Companion, Sentiment Sheet and two Co-ordinating papers from the CD to make this card.

I used Core'dinations card stock, the Downton Abbey Chandelier Die and Downton Abbey Coloured Pearls along with some ribbon from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting By Designs November Edition - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 280 - Die Cuts and/or Punches
Inspiration Destination Challenge 58 - Always Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts Challenge 4 - Anything Goes/ Use A Die Cut
Try It On Tuesday Challenge - Lots of Layers

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
