A Spring Birthday

Hi everyone,

I'm here to share a card I've made for a friend. I wanted to enter the latest House Mouse Challenge 

I printed a topper and matching backing paper from the House Mouse triple cd. I had to do this just by accessing the files directly from the cd as I haven't got Parallels installed on my Mac yet. Must get the hubby to do that for me... I made the base card using a sheet of glossy light blue card which has been in my stash for years. I then added a Spring edge die cut (Tattered Lace) and the backing paper. I covered the join between the two using two different blue ribbons. The topper has been mounted on an angle using foam pads. I've finished off with a couple of fancy corners on the topper. These are actually from the Spellbinder Frosty Forms Christmas dies. I've added a pearl to the centre of each. 

I added a white deckle edged insert to hide the ends of the ribbon.

I would also like to enter this for the following:-

Thanks for looking. I hope to see you again soon.
Happy crafting.
Helen xx
