Happy Birthday to You

I was a Spotlight Winner at Crafting by Designs recently and was invited to be a Guest Designer for one of their challenges.

I chose the Use 3 Designer Papers challenge and this is the card that I made.


I used papers from the English Country Garden Signature Collection by Sara Davies, this is such a beautiful collection.


I used papers from the 12" x 12" Paper Pad and the 6" x 6" Paper Pad.  I created the flowers and flourishes with the Floral Duo Dies and Lazy Daisy Dies from the collection.


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

Dragonfly Dreams Challenge - Say It With Flowers
The Corrosive Challenge 6 - Lots of Layers
Creative Craft Cottage Challenge 66 - Layer It Up
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread Challenge 18 - Always Anything Goes

Make sure you pop over to the Crafting by Designs challenge blog and take a look at the DT inspiration, it would be lovely if you could join us for our Use 3 Designer Papers challenge.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and thank you to the Crafting by Designs team for inviting me to join them as a Guest Designer.
