Female Birthday Card

Today is my sister's birthday and this is the card I have made for her. 
She is also a card maker, and we always try to make each other's cards using 
something the other one hasn't already got! 
I have used Promarkers to colour the ribbon and card to co-ordinate with the paper.
The items I have used are:-
Spellbinders Pop-Ups - Happy Days 
Spellbinders Tags - Charmed I'm Sure
Spellbinders Die D-Lites - Sprigs
Docrafts Xcut flower die - Glorious
Numbers - QuicKutz mini alphabet dies
Impression Obsession sentiment stamps
Backing Paper is My Mind's Eye - Wild Asparagus

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Pixies's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Blessings Ink - Birthday Celebrations
Come and Get It - Favourite Technique (Die-Cutting)
Dragonfly Dreams - Use a Die Cut
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes with Fancy Borders
Challenge up your Life - Die Cutting
Scrapy Land - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking in.

  7. Absolutely terrific design - love it.

    Is it just me, or do you feel MORE pressure when you're making a card for a fellow card maker?

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
