I love making the invitations, but I've been missing making colorful cards with lots of embellishments. And since a friend of mine turned 30 some days ago, I thought I should take a break from the invitatons and make her a birthdaycard.
In December I won a candy from Maya with a fantastic stamp from Lili of the Valley. I love it!! And I loved to color it up, I was looking forward to play with this fabulous stamp!!! It's named "Christmas candle", but I thought it worked great on a birthday card too ;) I've been playing with Jacque's fab sketch, making this card. I liked the sketch a lot and I'm sure I'll use it more times :)
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
* Friday Sketchers Blog- Sketch #136
* RRR Challenge - Something new (my new stamp!!) plus ribbon
* Flutter By Wednesday's - Open, add a butterfly, fairy og angel
* Sir Stampalot Challenge - A Winters tale
* Kort og Godt - White and blue
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Winter card
