Aud Sentiments #38 Happy Birthday

Lovely to see all your Get Well cards posted for our last challenge. This time at Aud Sentiments we'd like to see all your Happy Birthday creations. We're being sponsored by Glitterbabes  and the DT got to work with some fab images. I chose Celebration Envie:

I've coloured the image with promarkers using these lovely warm fall colours and highlighted with a gelly roll pen, then matted onto two layers of Papermania card stock. Backing paper is from HOTP, this has also been matted onto Papermania card stock. I've done some faux blanket stitching around both the image and backing paper (my first attempt!) and finished the card off with a ribbon tied into a bow and a K&Co embellishment. The sentiment was also from Glitterbabes.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the delightful creations of my team mates, you'll not be disappointed.
