Morning all hope you have a lovely weekend, well it's another dull day out there, where is our summer!.
Today brings a new challenge at Lexis Creations and the theme is Happy Birthday.
My card today is one of my own designs as time has been short last couple of weeks.
I have used Meadow Cottage Bears from my Cd which is available from Crafters Companion.
I have made an 8 x8 card and cut down from the spine and cut the top right corner off and have printed two backing papers to cover the inside and outside of the card. I have used one of the gorgeous decoupage images and mounted it to the front of the card along with a doily and ribbon from my stash.
I have made a border for the inside and outside edges and printed an embellishment sheet for the flower.
I have used a spellbinders die for the sentiment.
Our Sponsor for this challenge is Joanna Sheen.

The Challenges I would like to enter my card into are:-
Make It Monday - Anything Goes.
Kenny K's Krafty Girlz - Animal Antics.
The Ribbon Girl - Use Ribbon or Lace.

Thank you for stopping by and hello to my new follower thank you for joining me, looking forward to seeing your creations.
