Happy Birthday Donna

As promised earlier, here is the card I made for my friend Donna. Hope you've had a great day and that Mr Postie brought you lots of goodies.

I adore these beautiful organza ribbons and I just can't stop using them at the moment. I can feel a shopping trip coming on soon so that I can add a whole rainbow of these colours to my stash. (Thanks for getting me hooked Tara).

I remembered to take a picture of the inside again, which was made using the left-over bits.

Papers: DCWV Once Upon a Time and Old World Mat Stack. Blue Card.
Archetectural Accents Sizzix die
Martha Stewart Doiley Lace punch (I may wear it out soon!!)
Hobbycraft Organza wired ribbon
Flower, brad, lace, gems and ric rac from my stash.
Anita's Happy Birthday sentiment

Oh Sharon, what can I say, thank you sooooo much hun for the beautiful card and the lovely presents. You really shouldn't have spoilt me (oh but i'm so glad you did lol) I can't wait to use my little stash you got me, I'm so chuffed. Everyone has been admiring my cards and how did you do the 40 banner around the edge? Its fantastic, I can't work out if you done it by hand or stamped it! You really helped make my day very special, thank you from the bottom of my heart, big hugs. Donna x
