Crafting for all Seasons #66 Birthdays

Good morning all.
Sorry I'm being a particularly bad blogger at the moment! I've got the bulk of the wedding stationery out of the way but decided I needed to "sort" Christmas out...so last week I located all the bought stuff and sorted it all out before wrapping and labelling, then I've spent several days doing the rest of my shopping...for those harder to buy for people! I've been making gift bags and boxes in amongst all this activity and will get around to showing them soon but for now my computer time is limited or we won't get Christmas until February!! I need to sort my cards out next...catch up on the insert making and see whether I have enough specials yet.

Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Birthdays". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Bugaboo and the DT were given images to use.

I've used Live Laugh Love Flower Fairy and die cut with a labels one die from Spellbinders and layered it onto the corresponding fancy label. Ribbon and gems from my stash. The colours haven't come out too well on this..I've printed in violet and the card and ribbon do match.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

Scribble and Scrap - anything goes
Paper Players - shaped card
Brown Sugar - anything goes
