It's a celebration!

Woo hoo! My great bloggy friend Sharon is celebrating her 50th birthday today - happy birthday hun and hope you have a great day! Here is the card which I made for her, which I'm crossing my fingers has arrived in good time!

In honour of Sharon's birthday, Creative Card Crew challenge where she is a member made this week's challenge #31 theme It's a celebration - how perfect! This week's One Stop Craft Challenge is also in honour of Sharon's birthday with a theme of Happy Birthday & it is also challenge 50 - spooky or what ?? lol!!

I followed the sketch for Everybody-Art-Challenge #60: I kinda stretched the image shape and size to fit my stamp, but I hope you can still see the major elements of the sketch!

My card also fits another challenge I recently discovered, namely Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #36, which is Think Pink, in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here's a pic of the inside ....

Main image: Penny Black "Day-dreams " (3947K), embossed wtih detail gold powder and coloured with Sakura Sparkle pens;
Sentiments: front - Craftwork Cards "Oh! My Words"; inside - Hero Arts (embossed wtih gold detail powder);
Papers: both sides of 2-sided Bo Bunny paper, with the inside background paper free with "Making Cards" magazine a long time ago!!
Supplies: gold crocheted lace ribbon from Quixotic Paperie; Papermania pearl brad; dragonfly brads, green organza ribbon & various flowers from my stash;
Tools: mega deckled rectangle Nestabilities; iridescent pink cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug "Stylized flowers" folder; numbers cut out using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet.

Happy birthday to Sharon, and hope everyone is having a great weekend whatever you're doing ... I should be out at port Sunlight craft fair today (I've scheduled this post in advance to be sure I don't miss the birthday girl!) ... wonder what goodies I'll see??
