Happy Birthday

 It is a wet dismal day here today so I have spent some of the day crafting while catching up with some things that hadn't got done over the past week.  I'm not caught up yet but I'm getting there.

I found a few challenges that were sponsored by All Dressed Up so combined the themes and also followed a couple of others to produce this card:

I would like to enter:

All Dressed Up - April Challenge

Passion For Markers - Feminine

Creative Knockouts - Add A Sentiment

The Outlawz Monday Challenge - Buttons and a sentiment

Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch

Let's Squash It - 3 embossing folders and a person

I have used three embossing folders to create the background.  The embossing folders are from Cuttlebug (small flowers at the bottom) and Craft Concepts (Spring Flowers at the top and More Dots in the middle).

I then swiped some Metallic Gilding Polish across the top.  The colour is called Enchanted Gold but to me it is a barely there colour.  The image is from All Dressed Up and the sentiment is one that I had typed on the computer.  I added some pink lacy ribbon and some pink star buttons.

I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches:
