Fabulous Birthday

Here's a birthday card I made for my friend earlier this week. Unfortunately it then hung around the house/ my partner's desk/ my handbag, hoping someone would buy it a stamp and mail it...well, today it eventually got sent off, several days late - whoops!

So, the image is by Stamping Bella and the die-cut 'fabulous'  (which I coloured red) and the yellow patterned paper I used for paper-piecing, were a gift from my lovely Inkspirational Secret Santa. The other bits of the sentiment are Avery Elle.
I'd like to enter:
QKR Stampede birthday card
Stampin Royalty dies
Inky Chicks  happy Birthday
Cut it Up  birthday
Sweet Stampers  add a sentiment

This looks terrific and quite retro. I love the die cut and the bright red you used for it

Fun and colorful, perfect for any woman somehwhere between the twenties through forties, she's classy, ageless and quite modern.

How bright and cheery! I'm sure your friend won't mind that it's a couple days late -- you made it just for her! I love that the woman's shirt matches the background paper. Very pretty.

Thanks for joining us for our Birthday Card challenge at Cut it Up!

I'm sure your secret santa is happy to see the stuff he sent in action! ;) Great way to use designer paper and perfect placement for the sentiment.

Loving the simple design of this card, Marina. The layers really work to showcase the image! Thanks so much for joining in our "Anything Goes or Birthdays" challenge at QKR Stampede this week and thanks for using the optional theme. Good luck in the draw.
