Happy Birthday with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone, so nice to see a bit of sun for a change...there I've said it now...cue snow/rain lol.

It's time for a new challenge over at Ruby's RainbowIt was my turn to choose a theme and I chose Birthdays. We'd love to see any project to do with birthdays - remember we're a multicraft challenge, not just cards. I, however, am primarily a card maker so here's my little piece of inspiration...

I was asked by a friend if I could make a 50th birthday card for her friend, who loves to shop and this is what I came up with. The card itself is 8x8. I used the Flippin Women cd to decoupage the character. You also get the rear view but I didn't use it for this one. The backing papers have been in my stash for a while and are docrafts Born to Shop. I've used a couple of Spellbinders to display the number (Stately circle in black and plain circle in pink). I've added a charm, some pins and a double bow, finishing off with a peel off sentiment. Here are some close ups...

I also decorated the inside of the card to match the front.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Make it Monday 
Crazy Challenge - Add a charm 

Thanks for visiting. I'll be back later to show you a card I made yesterday afternoon after a lovely few hours spent with my Mum in my craft room. We don't spend much time crafting together but yesterday we tried out a few things I've seen on Create and Craft recently and she couldn't wait to get crafting back home last night. Can't wait to see what she's made. We're definitely gonna try to do this a bit more often.

See you again soon
