Happy Birthday to you!

This weekend sees my parents celebrating their 45th, Sapphire wedding anniversary. Quite an achievement by all accounts and my Dad can be heard at this time of year saying 'I'd have got less for murder!' I've yet to make their card, but the weekend is also my Dad's cousin's birthday and she will be visiting so I've made this card for her. I've made it in line with this week's SWUS
challenge. This week you need to follow the recipe that they have set which includes using
1 x patterned paper
1x flower
1 x button
2x ribbons
I've used the great set from the mini called Petal Pizzazz which is just so easy to use and gives great results no matter what colour you use and it's so much fun and really cheerful for the months ahead. The colours used are rose red, pumpkin pie, old olive and bashful blue in the designer series paper. Remember it's the last few days of the offer to buy 3 packs and get one free!
I've also used occasional greetings for the wording and some felt flowers and the requested button from the rich regals selection. Rose red double stitched and bashful blue taffeta ribbon finish of my ingredients and there's a fun birthday card.
I'll be back soon with the anniversary card so bye for now.
Hugs Zoë xx
