Happy Birthday

I am loving using Graphics 45 papers at the moment, so here is yet another card made using them.
So together with some trimmings from my stash and the trusty vintage photo distress ink, I was able to make this card in record time for me.
Usually I have to ponder a bit about what to use, when making a card  for my friend who likes gardening, these Secret Garden papers were just right.

I also had in mind our  new challenge theme over at Crafty Cardmakers which is 'Birthday'.
We are celebrating a special event at Crafty Cardmakers, it is 4 years since our very first post was published.
Please pop over to see what we all made and get all the details, including the super prizes on offer from our sponsors -
Di's digi stamps and Hobby Art.

Thank you for stopping by I always appreciate your comments.
